Lent - what's the deal ?
Lent is a special time in the year when Christians prepare for Easter, when they renew their commitment to Christ as we celebrate the resurrection of the Lord together. It is a time of repentance - of changing our live's to conform more closely to Christ's gospel with the help of his Holy Spirit.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday – February 14th. when there will be a Sung Eucharist at 10 a.m. and a short evening Eucharist at 8 p.m. Lent lasts for 40 days - ending in Holy Week- when we remember the events of Jesus's death. News about events in Holy Week and Easter will be announced in due course.
'pilgrim courses' for new followers and those who want to grow spiritually
This new year we launched a 'pilgrim course' at St. Margaret's for those interested in being baptised as adults and following Christ. These started in January and meet Sundays at 7.30 pm. at The Rectory
/////////////////////////////////////////////////////// /(2, Pinewood Close, Iver Heath, SL0 0QS)
The 'pilgrim' set of courses are for practising Christians who want to grow spiritually and have been produced by the Church of England and use DVD's to supplement discussion and study.
The 'pilgrim' courses each have four parts, lasting six weeks. We aim to make following Jesus and growing in Christ more available and contemporary.
A 'pilgrim' course on the Bible will be held on Thursday evenings for six weeks at the Church Centre starting at 8 p.m. Please let us know if you would like to join in by returning a form at Church on Sunday or to Fr Andrew (2, Pinewood Close).
pilpilgrim course – the Bible – Thursdays at St. Margaret's at 8 pm. starting February 15th

St. Margaret's Choir – as seen on TV! .... and in the pub!
Ten members of our church choir under Chris Daubney's direction, featured in the Christmas special edition of
‘Birds of a Feather' screened on 18th December.
They enjoyed their time with the film crew, and were shown singing ‘Silent Night', twenty three minutes into
Then on the Thursday before Christmas the choir assembled to share the wonder of the Christmas story by singing carols in ‘The Black Horse' pub in the village - an opportunity to share our faith in song!
Our Jam Club got off to a great start this year despite the weather and lots of illness! We have been learning about the parables of Jesus and having lots of fun !
Jam Tots is meeting Friday mornings and the mums, carers and children are having lots of fun. We recently took delivery of a trolley to hold children's coats and other outdoor wear while they play together. They also enjoy lovely treats and nice coffee provided by Marjorie. Please tell any young mums that you know about
Jam Club Xtra has expanded this term to take in more activities. In the second half children who want to play games stay in the Scout Hut and other children go to the Village Hall where we use a room to do craft-work or drama. This has expanded the range of what we do, but also the number of children who can participate.
Please pray for the Jam Tots team - Marjorie, Dee, Mary/and Father Andrew. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Focus on Giving
Although we have seen some exciting growth in our ministry with children, we are facing difficulty meeting our normal commitments. We have a projected shortfall of £4,000 at the end of this year. This is about our on-going commitment in Christ's service to pay our way and build the Christian community at St. Margaret's. For this reason, I am asking you to search your hearts and to respond, if you are committed to Jesus Christ and his Church, by revising your giving, with a target of 5% of income in mind.
Please prayerfully consider how you may be able to help us as together we reach out to our community with the Goodness of Jesus!
‘Each one of you must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.'
(Second Corinthians chapter 9 verse 7)
