WORLD DAY OF PRAYER 2019

This year’s service will be held at 2 pm on Friday, 1st March
2019 at Albert Road Evangelical Church. Formerly the
Women’s World Day of Prayer this service has been written by the Christian women of Slovenia and entitled

'Come – Everything is Ready!'
The services are always different each year and give an insight not only into the lives of women in the countries that participate but about the countries themselves. Do come!                              Ann Boulton

LENT NOTICES

A flourishing Lent at St. Oswald’s
2019 Lent Study Course:-The Bible Rediscovered

This year’s Lent course will introduce you to some new ways of approaching
Scripture to enable you to get stuck into the text and discover either for the first
time or afresh the true wonder of the Bible. The course booklet is free.
There are forms in church for you to indicate on which day of the week
you would like to meet, or give the parish office a ring... 652861.
