Kingston upon Thames

'In those days a decree was issued by the Emperor Augustus for a registration to be made throughout the Roman world.  This was the first registration of its kind; it took place when Quirinius was governor of Syria.  For this purpose everyone made his way to his own town; and so Joseph went up to Judaea from the town of Nazareth in Galilee, to register at the city of David, called Bethlehem, because he was of the house of David by descent; and with him went Mary who was betrothed to him.  She was expecting a child...Luke ch2 vv1-6

Lent and Easter in Kingston 2018



Brothers and sisters in Christ: Since early days Christians have observed with great devotion the time of our Lord's passion and resurrection; and prepared for this by a season of penitence and fasting.  By carefully keeping these days, Christians take to heart the call to repentance and the assurance of forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel and so grow in faith and devotion to our Lord.   You are invited, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy word.
