Shrove Tuesday

Tuesday the 8th March is the day before Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent, and a chance to empty your cupboards of all those tempting indulgences before the time of abstinence and contemplation begins. Pancakes contain fat, butter and eggs which were traditionally forbidden during Lent and St Peter's is going to indulge in a feast of them on this evening, so bring your syrup, chocolate sauce, cream to make them the best pancakes in town! Hot dogs, boerewors rolls and soft drinks will also be on sale if pancakes don't fill all the gaps, everybody is welcome from 6 o'clock.

On Ash Wednesday, there will be two services at 09h30 and 18h30, please bring your palm crosses from last Palm Sunday to make ashes.
