Mary Sumner Day 2019

Our celebrations for Mary Sumner Day will take place on Thursday 8th August at the Bishops Palace.

Starting with Midday Prayers in the Lady Chapel of the Cathedral, the prayers will be followed by a picnic in the Great Hall and Bishops Palace Gardens- please bring a picnic . Drinks and Cake will be provided- all are welcome

We celebrated our 140th anniversary in 2016 – but we’re still going strong. Our theme for 2019 is Listen, Observe, Act - in step with God, we see ourselves as practical as well as prayerful. See more about our projects, and how you can help on our Projects page.

Lent 2019 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

The season of Lent gives us time to consider our response to Jesus’ example as He withdrew to hostile desert country to better understand the role His Father had given Him. Traditionally we give something up or take on a new responsibility or commitment in order to walk alongside Jesus as He faces the tasks ahead.

Our journey to better understand God’s purpose for us as Christians in an increasingly secular world may be to “shine as a light” within our communities…I see this in the news from branches and the love and enthusiasm generated from joint enterprises which touch many lives often unknown but nonetheless effective.

My hope for us all is to sustain each other in love and prayer and for that energy to prove irresistible as we journey together to live and work for God’s kingdom.

A happy and joyful Easter to you all.

Andria Lewis
