St Helen's Eco Church meets this afternoon (Sunday 24th March) to tidy up the labyrinth and pond. We start with worship at 3.30pm and end with a shared meal. You are very welcome - especially if you haven't been before.

Wednesday 27th March is your last chance to enjoy a soup lunch for Lent in St Peter’s Undercroft between 12.30pm and 2.00pm. All welcome.

Palm Sunday at St Peter’s will start at 11.15am with the Litany of Palms. This will be followed by a dramatic presentation of Mark’s Passion story directed by Graham Pountney. All welcome.

There are Stations of the Cross set up in St Mary’s church Brading. Each station is an invitation for a personal encounter with Jesus, as you journey with him to the cross. This is your encounter so do it your way. The church is open during the day.

There is a benefice service of Holy Communion with Foot washing on Maundy Thursday at 6.00pm in St Peter’s Seaview. Do join us for this poignant service if you can (see your churchwarden if you need or can offer a lift).

On Good Friday we have contemplative prayer in St Helen’s from 12.00noon - 2.00pm and the Last Hour service at St Mary’s from 2;00pm - 3.00pm, plus the Way of the Cross at St Peter’s at 6.00pm. Everyone is welcome to come along to any or all of these.

The Free Family Easter activities on Easter Saturday at St Mary’s include an egg hunt, craft, quiz, building Easter gardens and hearing the Easter story. All families are welcome.

Please see Nigel if you would like to Join us for breakfast (bacon rolls) at 8.00am in St Mary’s on Easter morning so that he has numbers for catering.

APCMs: It is nearly time for our annual Meetings once again where we elect Church wardens, PCC members and Deanery Synod reps. Please do consider whether you could be called to serve in any of these really important positions so that a new incumbent can see how committed we all are. There will be nomination forms in each of the churches after Easter. The dates are St John's 27th March, St Helens 14th April at 11.00am, Seaview 21st April at 10.00am and Brading 21st April at 10.30am.

Date for your diary - The Bishop of Portsmouth, The Rt Revd Jonathan Frost is visiting the Haven Benefice on Sunday 28th April for the Sung Eucharist at 10.00am at St Helen's followed by a buffet lunch.
