Cross of Soil

In St Anne's church, we will mark Lent this year with a cross-shaped structure in front of the altar which everyone is invited to add a cupful of soil, clay or sand, from a place which has some special association for them - home, a field, a graveside or other place. The children preparing for their first communion processed up carrying soil today, but this is an activity for everyone to participate in. Pop in any time the church is open to add your soil, to contribute your piece in our cross-shape that makes up our parish community this Lent.

We remember our community over the last 150 years and how materials from many local places were used in the building of the church. Whether you are a regular or drop in occasionally, please bring a little soil when you can visit.
