On the feast of Candlemas we remember the ritual purification of Mary, 40 days after the birth of Jesus. It is also the ritual presentation of the baby Jesus to God in the Temple at Jerusalem.
Both our congregations will worship together at St Thomas’ Church, Woodland Terrace, SE7 8EW at 10.00am – there will not be a service at St Luke’s.
We’ll be pleased to welcome our guest preacher, Peter Graystone. Peter is a Christian writer who has worked and written for the Scripture Union, Christian Aid and the Church Army. He’s produced many devotional texts and writes a regular column in the Church Times. More recently Peter has taken over leading the Bishop’s Certificate for Southwark Diocese.
