TALK: Food for Thought continues at St Cuthbert’s Church, Pateley Bridge with the theme 'A Question of Faith’. The next one takes place on Wednesday, March 27 with Rev John Campbell called 'What do you want me to do for you?' Mark 10:51. Christianity is a verb before it’s a noun. Christian action is the key distinguishing mark of a vibrant faith. Maybe the question needs reflecting back to Jesus so that we ask him, ‘What do you want me to do for you?’ Each event starts at 6.30pm with a bring and share meal also known as a ‘Faith Supper’ - well it is called a question of faith after all (we recommend finger food). At around 7pm the series of faith talks begins. The evening should conclude after prayers, hopefully no later than 8.30pm. You can join them for the Faith Supper at 6.30pm, or arrive for the talk at 7pm prompt. You can then choose to leave after the talk or stay for the closing worship.

HOLY WEEK: You are warmly invited to the Holy Week Reflections Service at St Michael and All Angels Church, Wilsill on Tuesday, March 26 at 7pm. This special service of readings and hymns tells of Jesus’s entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through to his capture in the Garden of Gethsemane and Good Friday. We hope you will be able to join us. 'Stations of the Cross' on Good Friday, March 29 at 11am, the Church In The Dale walk together from the steps of St Cuthbert’s Church, Pateley Bridge through to the High Street. They do this to remember that Jesus had to carry his cross publicly through the streets of Jerusalem. It is a public statement of their faith, and a retelling of the crucifixion story. They stop outside various sites for readings and to sing hymns with the Dacre and Summerbridge Silver Band. Stations of the Cross in Holy Week - Palm Sunday (March 24) to Easter Monday (April 1) in Holy Trinity Church, Dacre Banks. There will be up 16 images of Jesus – ‘Stations of the Cross’ – each accompanied by a short poem or reflection. The idea being you can come into church and in your own time follow the story of Jesus’ last hours. This can be a very calming and moving experience as you enter imaginatively into the story. Why not come in and take some time to reflect – either throughout the week or all on one occasion?
