During this years lent Course we will be studying:

Untold Blessing: Three Paths to Holiness

Our ultimate goal is to be a saint.  It is our greatest calling and what is desired for us by our Creator.  Father Robert Barron paints a beautiful and mysterious image of what it takes to be a follower of “the One who is, Jesus Christ”.  The course lays out three intriguing paths to holiness:

  • Finding One’s Centre in Christ;
  • Knowing You’re A Sinner;
  • Realizing Your Life is Not About You.

It also provides practical approaches to enhance your journey along these three paths.

“I watched Untold Blessing in my Adult Faith Formation class. At the risk of repeating what you’ve probably heard many times, I was really moved by your analysis of the Bible. By incorporating quotations and stories from past theologians as well as pop culture figures, I found it extremely easy to relate to. I am in the middle of my life and feel a strong desire to do the will of God wherever it might lead me. Thank you for helping me put my journey in better perspective.”  Study Program Participant

The Lent course starts on Thursday 22nd February and will meet in the vestry after Vespers at 7:00pm. 

All are welcome to participate.


SATURDAY 19th MAY 2018

We are very pleased to welcome Luna Rossa, who will be performing their beautiful,
bewitching music
in the intimate and historic setting of St Martin’s church.

LUNA ROSSA are Anne-Marie Helder and Jonathan Edwards,
award-winning songwriters who are best known for their work with the rock band PANIC ROOM, and before that KARNATAKA.   Luna Rossa began life as a ‘little sister’ acoustic project to Panic Room, where Anne-Marie & Jonathan could create the perfect outlet for their more folky / rootsy material.  Since the first Luna Rossa album was released in 2013, the project has taken on a
shimmering identity of its own and has won critical acclaim
Luna Rossa’s very special guest at this concert will be  the lovely singer-songwriter Sarah Dean, aka The Incredible String Blonde.   Sarah is much in demand for her
stunning, versatile vocals, which take her from folk to blues to rock and everywhere in between!
However, it is the Celtic Harp that allows Sarah to create the rich textures and atmospheres that take audiences to another place with its magical & mesmeric soundscapes.

Tickets are just £17 (£20 at the door) and include a buffet meal. 

Please note that St Martin’s church does not run a
licensed bar.  However, you are positively encouraged to bring your own beer and wine to this event!
(Soft drinks will be available.)
