News from the Parish Churches in Lowick, Ford & Etal and Ancroft has been supplied by our Vicar,
the Revd Charlotte Osborne.
With the onset of British Summer Time comes the final two weeks of Lent and the
last stages of the journey to the Cross. Preparations for this during Holy Week and beyond are outlined in the
Diary below. You will find a warm welcome in all our churches and we very much hope to see you soon, perhaps
on Palm Sunday (April 10th) when all three parishes worship together in Ford church at 11 a.m. The service is
preceded by a procession from Ford (meet outside Lady Waterford Hall) led by a donkey to remind us of Jesus’
last journey into Jerusalem and the beginning of Holy Week. Do join in at any point.
