St. Peter’s Church, Salesbury

March and April 2022: Parish Letter


Dear Friends of Salesbury, Copster Green, Clayton-Le-Dale and Wilpshire,


Over the next months of March and April we enter into two important seasons of the Church calendar: Lent and Easter. We recall the journey of Jesus from the wilderness to the cross with the purpose of bringing God’s life into the world. In Lent we recognise there is much wrong with us as humans and many things broken in our world. Turning to share our troubles with God we find the companionship of Jesus and the transforming presence of the Holy Spirit. At Easter we celebrate the saving power which Christ’s death and resurrection has brought for all humanity. 


Who is Jesus?

This searching question is at the heart of our Sunday morning worship through this next season as we read through the many narratives of Jesus’ life and ministry in the Gospel of Luke. To ask this question for ourselves is to invite God to accompany us through our own life situations, beginning and deepening our faith in the Son of God. In our world where peace can be so devastatingly absent, we look to Jesus who is ‘the peace which passes understanding’ even in the most troubled places and lives. The Diocese of Blackburn have produced daily devotional booklets to lead us through Lent and Easter: ‘Signs of Life’ focus’ on John’s Gospel this year, please do come in and pick up a free copy inside. On our Facebook page and Website www.salesbury-stpeter.org.uk you will also find excerpts of this devotional as well as a link to daily prayers from the Church of England. We hope all these resources will enable you to discover ‘who Jesus is’ for yourself. 


Evening Prayer and Choral Evensong

We have the special privilege of a being a singing church: we love music and find our praise to God can be wonderfully expressed through song. Every 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month we have our Sunday evening service at 6.30pm, alternating between Evening Prayer and Choral Evensong. In these services we make use of traditional and contemporary music to offer a prayerful space where we can meet with God and know the encouraging presence of the Holy Spirit. It is our hope that the beautifully reflective feel of these services can be a time of peace and calm before the busyness of the week begins again. We would love to have you join us. 



A prayer to say and share this Lent to Easter:

Lord, forgive us our sins,

heal us by your Spirit,

and raise us to new life in Christ. Amen.


In this most prayerful of our Christian seasons think on these words:

‘The Lord is near. Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer with thanksgiving let your needs be known to God. And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.’ 

(Philippians 4:5-7)


We would love to have you worship with us. Please see the monthly News Sheet (available on our website, Facebook page, notice board and in church) for all information about our services and events. 

Every blessing, Liz
