Dickens fundraiser for the church: Get your tickets now!

BRIDFAS of Hamburg is generously holding its 17 March lecture in the church at 7pm, with all proceeds donated to church funds. Tickets must be bought in advance.

The lecture, entitled “Charles Dickens, the man and his life through his characters”, is by Bertie Pearce from the UK. The well-known British (Hamburg) actor and comedian Mark Lyndon will be supporting Bertie with several Dickens readings. There will a wine bar, and a raffle of art/heritage and Dickens books is planned.

Pat Pledger, Chairperson of BRIDFAS, hopes to fill the church, so please come along with some of your friends and spread the word about the event. It is open to everybody, but tickets must be bought in advance to ensure there are enough seats. Tickets cost €5 for members of BRIDFAS and the church and €12 for all others. They are available in church or as detailed in this PDF invitation.

Do not miss out on what promises to be a very enjoyable evening – get your tickets now!

Moments of revelation

Have you had a “mountain-top experience”, a moment of revelation, a turning point in your life when you see Jesus for who he really is? That was the question asked by Tania Witter, our locum chaplain, when she preached last Sunday on the Transfiguration. You can read the full text of her sermon here.

Ash Wednesday in church and on Facebook

Tomorrow (10 Feb) is Ash Wednesday, when we enter the season of Lent, remembering the 40 days and 40 nights that Jesus spent fasting and praying in the wilderness and beginning our own spiritual journey towards Holy Week and Easter. You can join us in church at 7 pm for an Ash Wednesday service of Holy Communion and imposition of ashes. If you can’t be there, why not tune in to Ash Wednesday live from Lambeth Palace on Facebook – from 1.35 pm German time?
