Lent Programme 2017 – Abraham: A Journey Through Lent
This year, using Dr Meg Warner as our guide, we will be journeying with Abraham, through his challenges, doubts, false turns and unbelievable promises. Our Lent Study will begin on Wednesday 8 March with an informal Eucharist in which Meg Warner will be joining us to introduce her book, Abraham: A Journey through Lent, followed by simple Lenten supper and study groups.
The cost of the course is £15 which includes a copy of the book and the study materials (or £8 if you already have the book). Join us for the 6 week programme: March 8, 15, 22, 29, April 5, 12.

Baptism and Confirmation
Each year courses are provided for both young people and adults who wish to prepare for Baptism and Confirmation, or for Confirmation alone if the person is already baptised. Courses take place on Sunday mornings from 12.15-1.15 (after the Parish Eucharist) and usually begin in March preparing for Confirmation by the Bishop which usually takes place in May or June. If you or your child would like to be baptised or confirmed, please let a member of the clergy team know. Registration takes place in January- February each year.
The Cloak is St Martin’s network of small groups. St Martin’s has a diverse and growing congregation and seeks to live in the light of the welcoming and hospitable charism of St Martin, who shared his cloak with a beggar. A larger congregation challenges us to think creatively about how to nurture each other in our faith and thread our community life together. The Cloak seeks to offer members of the congregation the opportunity to join a small group for prayer, bible study, fellowship and supporting each other in turning our faith into action in the world.
We currently have four groups, Central, South, West and North. If you are interested in joining a group, please download a flyer or pick one up from church and return it to the church office. We can’t guarantee to find you something immediately, but we will do our best, and may be able to suggest a group which you could visit to see what happens there. As the network grows, more spaces will open up.
For more information about the groups, please contact Revd Katherine Hedderly on 020 7766 1102 or via email.
