The Parish of Ulverston
In our garden, the emerging snow drops have been joined by flowering camellias, rhododendrons and aconites as the lengthening days stir new life from the soil and herald the coming spring.
At Ulverston Parish Church, we are committed to welcoming and caring for people at every stage of life. Coffee and Chat is woven into the fabric of church life as much as the Toddler Group. However, the church nationally as well as locally needs to invest in children and young families if we are to remain healthy and vigorous over the longer term.
For this reason, we have taken the decision to recruit a part-time Children and Families Worker, to enable us to sustain and develop our existing children's work within the church, and to help us minister more effectively to the children and young families of our community. We hope that this appointment will both strengthen our team of children's leaders and complement the youth work which is now flourishing under Vic and Charlie and their team of leaders and helpers.
Lent will soon be here. We will start Lent with a Day of Prayer on Ash Wednesday, starting with Morning Prayer at 08.30 and finishing with Communion (and the imposition of ashes) at 19.00. Please join us for that, if you are able, as we begin our journey to Easter together.
On 21st March, we are having our next Learning Community Day at the Kepplewray Centre, from 10.00 to 16.00. This will be a participative, all-age affair, with games and activities woven into the day. In particular, we will be looking at Missional Communities and how they can help us. Again, do join us if you can.
