February Newsletter

Dear Friends,

February sees the start of the season of Lent: the six weeks before Easter when Christians are called to spend time reflecting and praying. It’s a season when we intentionally seek to grow spiritually; a time to stop, think, slow down and wait on God, refocusing on Him. Each Lent God calls us to return to Him. To know, receive and be comforted by His goodness and mercy. Lent is not really about what we give up, but where our hearts are directed. This Lent, I will be following the Church of England’s Watch and Pray Lent course which invites us all to wait in hope for God to meet us in the storms and trials life brings. We will have copies of the reflections in church should you wish to join in, so please feel free to take a copy for your own private time of reflection and prayer. The booklet will be accompanied by a wide range of video resources available via cofe.io/WatchAndPray. This season of self examination and reflection can give us hope and a renewed sense of being, because through life’s many ups and downs, God promises to be with us. Always.

God Bless,


Clare Coates,
Lead Minister for Caldecote with Childerley, Dry Drayton and Hardwick
