News from University College Chapel

Hello everyone,

So, we are coming towards the end of the term already! I do hope you have all enjoyed the beautiful spring weather we've had of late, and that this final week isn't too stressful for you. It is very helpful amongst the busy-ness of life to take time for prayer and reflection, to put everything in perspective. Perhaps our last two services of the term can provide us all with opportunities to do so:

Tuesday at 9pm: Contemplative Prayer in the Norman Chapel. A chance to set our problems and concerns before God, this week led by Tim in the candlelit chapel. A perfect way to end another day of Lent.

Thursday at 6pm: Readings and Music for Lent in the Tunstall Chapel. Do take the opportunity to attend this unique service of reflection as we look forward to the coming of Easter in the midst of this season of waiting and celebrate St Cuthbert's Day.

Finally, there will be hot crossed buns in the Chaplain's Office from 4 to 5.30 on Thursday - please drop in at any point between those times if you'd like one.

May you all have a peaceful Lent, a refreshing holiday and a joyful Easter celebration.
