All our Lent Courses are open to the whole community. You do not need to be a church attender to join these groups.
You may even wish to join more than one!
As usual we have a variety of Lent Courses. This year you will see that two of the courses are quite practical ones although they will include conversation, a prayer and a thought to take away. Please choose whichever time, day and type of course you prefer even if it is in a different
part of the United Benefice from where you live.
Every Picture Tells A Story - Wednesdays 14.00 at The Vicarage,
Rostherne. With Mary Hayden Frazer our Artist in Residence.
Thursday 4th April and Wednesday 10 April.
Have you started on a cross stitch picture, or a piece of embroidery which has slowly been relegated to the cupboard, then ends up in the loft
unfinished? Have you inherited a loved family members unfinished project? Why were they never finished? It is usually because life gets in the way. The pieces themselves have no real value except to the person who has created them. When finished you can proudly say "I (or whoever) did that". So, what do you do with them when they are not finished? Usually nothing.
For Lent, we want to gather these unfinished pieces, it does not matter how large or how small, embroidery, cross stitch, tapestry, it does
not matter. Each piece has a personal history, who was this person who stitched it, when, are they still alive? Gather up your unfinished
pieces and bring them along with a story about the person who created it. The information will be gathered into a booklet along with
information on the finished Lent project.
All the work will be made into a hanging for the church to display. This will be a joint project for all people to take part in, everybody can
help to make the hanging.
