A recent CTiB Clergy and Reps meeting reviewed our five week Lent Programme run at St John’s Eden Park and also the Good Friday Walk of Witness in Beckenham. We were delighted that over 100 people attended the Lent Programme each week. Our topics were praying the Way of the Cross, Talking Jesus, how the Old Testament paves the way for Jesus’ coming, learning to sing Steiner’s Crucifixion, and studying examples of Lent Art. In the last week we heard presentations from each group of learners.
In Holy Week we came together for our usual Good Friday Witness and Reflection – our Walk behind the Cross and two short Services, but this year in brilliant sunshine amidst a record turn out. Thanks to all who attended, to those who helped in various ways, to those praying for and with us and to those who asked questions. For me, both were a very powerful demonstration of Christians working and worshipping together in Beckenham.
Our next Programme will be a joint Pentecost Service on Sunday 9 June at 3.30 at Beckenham Baptist Church, Beckenham Road (see the Posters on the Noticeboards). Do join us if you can.
