Lenten Planning 2023

With Advent and Christmas behind us, we need to remember that Lent is not far off. If you would like to begin planning for Lent, the Faith Formation and Leadership Development Committee of Region 15 is offering the opportunity to connect via ZOOM to look at the lectionary readings for the season and to share ideas and resources. We will gather on Thursday January 19th 2023 from 9am to noon. If you are planning, or helping to plan worship at any point during Lent we invite you to join us. This includes ministry personnel, laity and musicians. For more information you can contact Rev Sharon Lohnes at revsharonbeacon@eastlink.ca.


Handbells

We are looking to borrow a 2-3 octave set of hand bells for our church. If you have hand bells that you are not using, and are willing to lend them, we would be delighted to be able to ring them. We have been ringing hand bells for 2 1/2 years but recently returned the set we had borrowed. Please contact Hillsborough United at huc1862@gmail.com.
