WELCOME TO CHRIST CHURCH, RIDLEY PARK
We recognize that the future of our Church lies in meeting the needs of families seeking a supportive community while juggling increasingly complex demands in their lives. We welcome individuals of any age who want to contribute their gifts to the well-being of others.
How that plays out in practice in a world where disruptive technology and established tradition seem to frequently be at odds is unknown, but this Church community is enthusiastic about moving towards that future. Our stability as a parish offers plenty of opportunity to explore what the Church of the future might need to offer those in search of a welcoming community.
HOLY LENTWorship, conversation, sharing, eating, and gathering throughout Lent at CCRP. All are welcome, come when you can, come as you are.
LENTEN WEDNESDAYS -To assist your Lenten discipline and lifelong learning we invite you to ponder and pray through the free devotional Living Well Through Lent. We have many copies and suggest one copy per household, and these are free to all. The same devotional is available in Kindle format for 99 cents. This beautiful conversation with struggle, bravery, balance, and feelings of emptiness will also be the center of the start of our Lenten Wednesdays.
On March 3, 11, and 18, the schedule will be the following: 5pm Self Guided Stations (Anyone can walk through the stations on their own at their own pace). 6pm Dinner, followed by 645pm LWTL Teaching and Conversations, and then at 745p we will pray Compline together in the Nave.
On March 25th we will follow the same beginning pattern until the end of the evening when we will experience the stations together at 730pm.
** If you have young children and are interested in participating in Lenten Wednesdays, please get in contact with Rev'd Jane very soon so we can make arrangements.**
LEARNING SEDER- April 1 we will experience a Learning Seder together starting at 5.45 pm: an event which is intended for all ages.
