Click here for  the 2020 Lenten Prayer Guide
(Lent in 7 Objects and ACTIONS)

A prayer resource for each week of Lent, centred around an object to get you thinking. There will be an object each week to make the prayer and reflection more meaningful. There will be a suggestion to ponder and something to do in daily life each week, as well as a quote from Jesus to discuss and to ‘hold’ through the week.

If you would prefer to discuss and reflect in a small friendly group, using the same Lenten Reflections,
then come along on  Wednesdays from 10 am -11.30
from Ash Wednesday to Holy Week (26 February – 8 April inclusive)
at Pauline Q’s home in Meonstoke (877393)

How is God Calling You?

The Church of England is passionate and committed that all vocations should be recognised, regardless of gender, age, colour or background. This does not necessarily mean to ordained ministry. We have Licensed Lay Ministers (Readers), authorised lay workers (chalice assistants, servers, vergers, etc) and recognised lay workers (pastoral visitors).
If you feel that God might be calling you to ‘something’ but you’re not sure what, do please speak to Fr Tony or Canon Anthony.

Equality

(click here for our policy)

The Parishes of The Meon Bridge Benefice (Corhampton and St Andrew, Meonstoke, St Mary and All Saints, Droxford, and St Peter and St Paul, Exton)  are committed to promoting the understanding of the principles and practices of equality – treating each person as an individual, according to their needs, with an awareness of our diverse society and appreciating the value of difference. The Benefice recognises Access as an important part of its work .
