The schedule of the study is below and please contact our priest Kirk if you would like to participate in the study.

Shrove (Sunday) Pancake Lunch
The Bergen Anglican Church will hold its annual Shrove (Sunday) Pancake Lunch directly after morning worship on Sunday 23 February in Mariastuen. Our pancake lunch is an adaptation of Shrove Tuesday, which is a day of feasting in preparation for the 40 days of fasting in Lent, and is always the day preceeding the first day of Lent on Ash Wednesday.
This year's lunch will have a different format than in years past: we are asking everyone to bring pancakes or pancake toppings or boller or other baked goods in the tradition of a potluck. Our lay reader Iris is going to lead us in a Shrove Tuesday quiz and we will still hold our pancake flipping contest! A reminder that Øyvind is the reigning Bergen Anglican Church 2019 Pancake Flipping Champion and he's ready to be challenged!
If you have any questions about what to bring, please contact Barbara McIntosh who is organizing the lunch at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone: 993 83 916
Ash Wednesday Service
Each year the Bergen Anglican Church begins and ends the season of Lent with the Church of Norway congregation of Mariakirken, with ecumenical services on both Ash Wednesday and Easter morning. Please join us on Wednesday 26 February at 18:00 in Mariakirken for our Ash Wednesday service which will include the imposition of ashes and communion.
Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020
Our local church AGM will be held on Sunday 29 March in Mariastuen directly after morning worship. Please save the date and plan to be a part of this important meeting about the life of our church. Also, like in years past, please bring finger foods to share with everyone.
