Random Lent Thoughts

If you're looking for a little more spiritual input through the Lenten season, Tim is writing a blog series called 'Random Lent Thoughts'. His goal is to post every day except Sunday (when he posts his sermon), but he may not succeed in that due to busyness of life etc. etc.!

If you'd like to read them, go to Tim's blog 'Faith, Folk and Charity' at https://tachesterton.wordpress.com. He will also be posting them on the parish Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/stmargaretsedmonton/), and on his own Facebook page.

Daytime Lectionary Bible Study from 2pm – 3:30pm on Wednesday afternoons @ the church. Please drop in if you can!
