Recently at Holy Saviour Croydon…
Ash Wednesday this year was on 14 February, therefore also Valentine’s Day! We spoke about the patience, kindness and generosity in forgiveness of God’s love as we begin the Lent season. We also lit the 40 candles; those donated by members of the congregation at Candlemas. The candles are wonderful in their diversity of shape, size and hue (see below), as are we!

Revd Catherine attends Croydon Council’s Congress of Culture
Croydon Council held a Congress of Culture on Thursday, 18 January. The day brought 200 delegates, including our own Revd Catherine, together for ‘buzzy’ discussions on the links between art and well being, art and young people. It was also good to explore talking with people about the links between faith, spirituality and the arts.
Croydon is putting a bid in to be the first ‘London Borough of Culture’, as chosen by the Mayor of London, in 2019. Let’s pray Croydon wins as it would help the area regenerate.
