We’ve got all sorts of things happening during May this year. But this one we wanted to tell you about as soon as we could, because we’re really excited about it. You can read about the book and our speaker, Bex, here in the Daily Telegraph.
Come and find out about an Instructed Eucharist, contemplative prayer, a labyrinth, prayer through music and a prayer walk. A teaching session on each hour and then time to try it out. Lunch available, please phone 575565 in the morning to help us with numbers for catering.
Heard of the Alpha course? Wonder what it is all about? Put 4 June in your diary as that’s when we’ll be running the next course here at St Leonard’s. We’ll publish more details here nearer the time. First session will be on Wednesday 4 June, starting with a meal at 7.30pm. If you’d like more information contact jacquie(at)stleonardslexden.org.uk or call her on 01206 760742.
On the 5th January we had an all age service for Epiphany, the visit of the Magi to Jesus.

On the 2nd January at 3pm we had HOLY COMMOTION - active church for children of all ages.

We held our Christmas Bazaar on Saturday 7th December.
There was plenty to buy and lots to do…
…and lots of opportunities to find a bargain or have a chat over lunch or a snack.
The young people of St Leonard’s led an Advent Service on Sunday 1st December. The theme was ‘the armour of light’ .
Beyond Blue – our choir for young people of secondary age and above – sang O Come, O Come Emmanuel, ‘The Advent Candle’ by Bob Chilcott, and the ‘Repose Blessing’ by Margaret Rizza.
