Lent Course - see Praying Together page for full details.
This year for Lent we are running a Pilgrim Course: The Eucharist - exploring why The Eucharist is celebrated as a memorial of Christ’s saving passion and stands at the very heart of Christian worship.
These sessions are on Wednesdays 3.00 pm – 4.30 pm, starting on 14th February, at Downton Vicarage, Barford Lane. Contact: Rev Frank Gimson 01725 510326
Frugal lunches will be hosted by various people in the village during Lent.
There is an open invitiation to anyone to attend - please support the lunches again this year to raise funds for Christian work in the Sudan, as well as enjoying some home-made soup and a chance to chat with friends or meet new people.
Please contact the organiser for details of venue and timing, and to book your place, as numbers may have to be limited.

Over Lent at St Laurence we are setting time aside to pray;
asking God to inspire and renew us as his Church.
We shall meet each Monday at 6pm for about an hour
starting on 19th February in The Meeting Room in Church (it will be warm!)
Please do join us.
If you are unable to come, please do pray whenever you can – wherever you are.
Speak, for your servant is listening (1 Samuel 3:10)
