Ash Wednesday 1st March : During Lent our Bishops Martin & Mike will be walking on pilgrimage from Dunwich to Bury St Edmunds, visiting parishes, schools & homes along the way. Their walk begins on Ash Wednesday with a Eucharist on the beach in Dunwich at 9.00. If the weather is bad the Eucharist will be held in Dunwich church. The Bishops would be delighted to be joined at the start of their journey by any well wishers who might like to join the Eucharist and even walk a little way with them. We are therefore cancelling the Ash Wednesday morning service in Walberswick, and I encourage people to gather in Dunwich to pray for our Diocese, for our church family and for a holy Lent.
