Lent, Holy Week & Easter

During Lent we will be holding a Lent Course on Wednesday evenings, 7.30pm beginning on Wednesday 27th February. This year we’re using a course called “Passing The Test” by David Adam which will last six weeks (beginning week before Ash Wednesday). Each evening we will spend time reflecting, being quiet and looking at a Bible passage and thinking about different aspects of Jesus time & temptations in the desert – helping us to journey as individuals and communally through Lent to Easter.
Also everyone is being encouraged to take one of the Christian Aid Lent “Rising Up’ Sheets from church which gives us all something to reflect on and do each day in a practical way as well as as helping to raise funds for those less fortunate than ourselves.
Please make every effort to participate in these activities during this important season in the Church’s year.
