Deanery Ascension Day service, Thursday 25th May, 7.30pm at St Bartholomew's, Otford
25th May—4th June
Responding to the archbishops’ call to spend a week praying for the evangelisation of our nation, we will hold eight days of services, prayer meetings and workshops to help people pray for God to draw our nation and its people to himself. Resources will be available to use at home and at work.
Between Easter and Pentecost home groups will be looking at a series of videos produced by the Archbishop of Canterbury, giving us tools to share our faith.
There will be a range of prayer events held throughout the deanery. Download the programme here

As part of the Discipleship Programme for 2017, our Sermon Series on Acts starts on Sunday, 28th May, marking the beginning of our ‘Growing’ season of learning in the Benefice over the coming months.
We will be exploring the story of the early church through the book of Acts and St Paul’s letters, looking at how the church got started, some of the issues it faced, and how it called people to minister in the church and wider world.
Home groups will be following the readings, discussing sermons, and there will be three teaching evenings in addition to sermons on Sundays, held in St Martin’s from 7.15-9.15pm:
Tuesday 6th June—An introduction to the Book of Acts
Wednesday 26th July—An introduction to Paul’s early epistles
Tuesday 12th September—An introduction to Paul’s pastoral epistles
