Wednesday 9 April Garvagh
All events begin at 8pm
What are the evenings about?
A number of different things will happen:
Bishop Ken will speak about the development of our diocesan vision, focusing particularly on the themes of generosity, mission and children
There will be some video material of ordinary parishes that have exhibited spiritual growth by developing a value of generosity
Ian Hanna, former music leader at St Patrick's, Coleraine, and now Director of the House of Prayer, will lead us into prayer for the work of God in our diocese in a way that mines the riches of our liturgies but in a fresh and imaginative way
So, although there will be an element of worship in the evenings they are more than a Lent Service. They will give us an opportunity to stop, reflect and take stock of the progress we have made on our Transforming Community: Radiating Christ journey and to take fresh energy as we continue on that pathway together.
Our Bishop has asked that you invite your people who might that your normal Lent Service on that evening to come instead to the diocesan event nearest you. "I particularly look forward to being joined by all the clergy, diocesan and parish readers, Select Vestry members, Parish Development teams, Youth leaders and Sunday School leaders and choirs. But everyone will be welcome."
