St. Mary's Church, Theydon Bois

Ascension Day

ASCENSION DAY - THURSDAY 25TH MAY

On Ascension Day there will be two opportunities to join in the Global Wave of Prayer, as our Archbishops encourage the whole church to pray "Thy Kingdom Come" between Ascension Day and Pentecost.

At lunchtime, there will be "Prayer with Lunch" from 12 noon - 2.00pm at Goosebury Hall, Epping Long Green, CM16 6QN. This is the home of Michael Chapman, and he has kindly offered to open his garden for us to pray using the Labyrinth. This garden is a member of the Quiet Garden Movement, which seeks to nurture low cost, accessible, outdoor space for prayer, contemplation, rest and inspiration in a variety of settings. A light sandwich lunch will be provided, and it would be helpful to let Michael or Sarah Bowen know, for catering purposes, that you are coming.

In the evening, there will be a Benefice Service of Sung Communion at 8p.m. at St Mary's Theydon Bois.
