The final update to our virtual journey.  We ‘arrived ‘ in Lourdes on Easter Sunday after cycling 1216 miles in 51 days, in the beautiful local countryside through wind, rain, hail and sunshine.

Thank you to all who have encouraged us on our way and for the generous donations that have been made. We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received. We have raised over £2500 so far, but you can still sponsor us if you wish to support this worthy cause.

Mary’s Meals is a charity dedicated to providing life changing meals to some of the worlds poorest children. Their vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things. We would really appreciate your support in helping raise funds for this charity. You can read more about their great work and perhaps donate to our project via the link below.

Alternatively you may like to ring Arnold Marsden on 01200 427096 or email cycle21lourdes@yahoo.com to be added to our sponsor list.

The Communication and Media Group is looking at ways to improve communication and community in the Parish so that everybody has access to everything they want to know. A meeting, was held this week, and one result of that, was the suggestion that groups within the parish may like to hold a Zoom (or equivalent) session to let people in the parish know what their particular group does. In the first instance it was thought that groups who had been active on Zoom during lockdown may like to take part first. Hoping that others will also take part later, to let members of the parish know about them and what they do. These information meetings would take place over quite a few months. Please let Margaret Spencer; j.spencer526@btinternet.com know if any groups would like to contribute.

In the meantime, there is one that everyone would be welcome to, on 11th April, and each Sunday after that, which is the Church Coffee Group. It has been running successfully for many months now, and has been a wonderful opportunity to keep talking about what we have been doing and what has been happening at Church.

It would be great to welcome other members of the Parish to join us. If you would like to join at 11am on Sunday mornings, please contact Margaret or John Spencer for the ID link on j.spencer526@btinternet.com


A compelling, passionate witness to life lived in the Risen Christ, Paul a dedicated builder of Christian community and writer of Scripture, lived deeply from the ground of his deep faith. After his dramatic and life-changing conversion, he spent time in the desert – so we begin by following Paul into the desert during Lent and then seek to explore his challenging and profound experience of faith.
