Celebrating St Aidan, Sunday 2nd September
22nd August 2018
St Aidan is celebrated in the Church of England on 31st August each year.
We will remember Aidan on the nearest Sunday, 2nd September in both services on that day.
At 10am we have an all-age informal service and at 6pm Holy Communion.
We will reflect on aspects of Aidan’s life and faith, as an example and inspiration for us today.
Aidan was an Irish monk sent from the monastery on Iona in Scotland to introduce Christianity to the north-east of England in the early 600s AD. Aidan established a monastery on the island of Lindisfarne, which became known as Holy Island. Aidan was consecrated Bishop of Lindisfarne in 635. He died on 31st August 651.
Come along and find our more about this great man who influenced our country for good and for God.
