The Keys present a “Magic lantern Show” at St. Peter’s, Henfield

On Saturday 27th February at 5.30pm a Magic Lantern show will shine out once more in Henfield. Before the arrival of cinema in 1896 people were entertained by images projected from a “magic lantern”, which is essentially an elaborate slide projector. Trevor Beattie who has been collecting slides and performing shows for more than 30 years will be our lanternist using original slides that are well over 100 years old.  Do come along and enjoy a journey back in time. The show is suitable for all ages and is Free with a retiring collection for the Church Lent charity, Family Support Work. For enquires please contact the parish office on 01273 495532.

Ash Wednesday services at St.Peter’s, Henfield.

Lent is the time of year when Christians prepare for Holy Week and Easter and begins on Ash Wednesday.  Its a time of self examination, penitence, self-denial, prayer ,  study of the bible  and charitable giving as we reflect on our faith and seek to become better Christians, turning our hearts towards Jesus Christ.

Lent begins this Wednesday 10th February and there will be 2 services at St. Peter’s , Henfield, at 10.30am and 7.30pm. Both services with include the “imposition of ashes”, the signing of the cross in ashes on the forehead, as a sign of penitence and of the desire to have a Holy Lent.  The services will both include the sharing of bread and wine in Holy Communion and the evening service will also include some hymns.  All are welcome to join us.  For more information please contact the Parish/Benefice office on 01273 495532
