WORSHIP IN THE WILDERNESS
A LENT SERIES
Our journey of Deeper Discipleship takes us into the Wilderness as we consider what it means to find new or different forms of Worship during Lent. Join with us at our Sunday morning service, starting at 10:45am, and discover how refreshing and renewing our personal faith by seeking out time with God, can help us to do something meaningful and generous this Lent.
SUNDAY 18TH MARCH
Led by Revd David Mann
A Time of Reflection using Seven Candles
“The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it” (John 1:5). But for a while it seemed as if the darkness was overcoming—for a long while.
The seven candles symbolize the Light of the World—the Light that was God’s glory and that illuminated God for us—the Light that, in the end, seemed to have been darkened. As we move through the reflection with words of scripture, the candles are snuffed out one by one, until all are dark.
But Easter brings resurrection! Life! Return from death! The Light has won and all the candles will burn on Easter Morning as we praise him—the Light of the World, the Bright Morning Star, the Glory of God.
Sunday Sanctuary offers an alternative time of worship and reflection.
We meet in the Meridain Hall, or Compass Room at Bethel and we are joined by members of other local church communities for a short time of worship, prayer, fellowship and reflection.

HOW WE DO CHURCH
SIX PURPOSES OF CHURCH
Discipleship - Fellowship - Ministry - Outreach - Prayer - Worship
Everything that we do, or might do, at Bethel fits into at least one of the Six Purposes, and through the allocation of oversight to our deacons we have a way to make sure that what we are doing is purposeful and in line with where we believe God is calling and leading us.
You can find out more about each of the Six Purposes by clicking on the links below.
