“Blessed is the king who comes in the name of the Lord!” Luke 19 v 38

We offer you a very warm welcome especially if you are a visitor and to those who will be watching during the week on the DVD and to Jo Eckersley who is leading our Palm Sunday worship this morning.


Prayer Requests – Please pray for the people of Ukraine and pray for peace.

Please pray for our Circuit Ministers Rev Joe Adams, Rev Ken Chalmers and Rev Alan Jenkins.

Continue to pray for all others who are in any way troubled, lonely, unwell or bereaved and anyone else who needs our prayers.


Easter Day at Lexden – our Sunday service with Holy Communion on Easter day – 17th April – will be at 3pm and will be led by Rev Paul Howes. We will not have a morning service next week.

Friendly Tea Club will start again this Tuesday – 12th April 2-4pm. New members always welcome.

During the Annual Church Meeting it was agreed, on a trial basis, that we would hold just two services a month on the first and third Sunday with tea and coffee served afterwards. This will start in June when the next quarterly plan comes out. We will continue to hold the Thursday prayer time on a weekly basis.
