Next Friday in St. Peter’s, there is a buffet, some entertainment and a ‘bake off’. A time of laughter, song and intense cakes and buns, but who will win this year’s trophy?
Crosses from Spring Grove School in place above the altar.
At St Peter’s on Palm Sunday we will be witnesses to Jesus arriving in Jerusalem – walking (weather permitting) around St. Peter’s garden and back in to church. We shall process behind a donkey (a donkey masked child) and offer palm crosses to those we pass. Being outside our buildings shows something of our faith. The continuing service moves the Jesus story on to the events of the Last Supper.
This is the title of our final Lent talk this year when Maggie McLean will be speaking about sexuality, equality and the bible.
This 2017 series of Lent Talks at the Parish Church and the University that have featured 2 bishops, 1 dean, and 2 vicars speaking on a range of topics from murderous artists to miracles, and now to sex. The people of Huddersfield have been stimulated and challenged by all the talks so far and this last talk will be a fitting finale to the season, encouraging us to engage with a topic that often divides the church, yet is rarely openly discussed.”
3pm at Church, 5:30 at the University of Huddersfield Faith Centre.
The Rev’d Canon Maggie McLean is Vicar of Christ the King, Battyeford.
