Team Notices 26 February

Posted on by Tania Birtwistle

Ash Wednesday 1st March : During Lent our Bishops Martin & Mike will be walking on pilgrimage from Dunwich to Bury St Edmunds.  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 in Dunwich church.  The Bishops would be delighted to be joined at the start of their journey 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.
