As ordination and admission to Holy Orders approaches at Petertide it’s traditional to send Ember Cards, asking people to pray for the candidate, their family, the priest they will be working and training with in their new churches, and the people of those churches.
I’m mainly sending my Ember Card virtually via this blog in a small attempt to reduce the pressure on the environment. Here it is:
Please pray for all to be admitted
to Holy Orders this Petertide,
Anthony Richard Bennett
to be made Deacon by
The Rt Revd Nick Baines,
Bishop of Leeds
in Wakefield Cathedral
at 3:00 pm
on Saturday 29th June 2019
Please also pray for Anthony’s family,
for the Revd Peter Mullins,
and the people of the benefice of
Haworth and Cross Roads-cum-Lees,
where Anthony is to serve
as Assistant Curate.
Keighley Shared Church, Wednesday 17th April 7.45-9 15pm, including Compline (Night Prayer).
No need to book, just come along to hear my reflections on my recent pilgrimage to the Holy Land, meditate on scripture as we approach Easter, and pray together as we celebrate the beautiful liturgy of Compline (Night Prayer). For further info please email: email@example.com.
Our next Christians Against Poverty (CAP) Life Skills Course starts at midday on Thursday 9th May, at the Keith Thompson Centre (KTC) in Braithwaite, Keighley.
On the course, we learn how to stay healthy and make our money go further. The eight-week course is designed to give you confidence and decision-making skills to live well on a budget. We start with lunch every Thursday, and some weeks we have social events too. Email me: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone/text 07484365310 to book a place on the course.
If you are interested in helping to run the course you could join our team of befrienders. We have some training coming up at midday on Thursday 2nd May. You would be most welcome to come along and find out more.
