This year we are offering 2 regular weekly opportunities to join us and walk through Lent together. Lenten journeys are important as times of reflection, but they also help us grow in our faith as we consider difficult issues in our lives and the world and of course help prepare ourselves for great celebration of Easter.
The courses commence with our ASH Wednesday service at on 17th Feb at 7pm.
Obviously this year we cannot be signed with ashes, but we can come together on ASH Wednesday to publicly declare our willingness to repent, to change our ways and to offer ourselves to God in self-reflection and self-denial. The symbol of the Ash cross is traditionally our public declaration of this, yet it carries no sacramental action. God already knows us and knows if we in our hearts turn to him.
There are 2 courses to help us on our 2021 Lenten journey.
Commencing in the ASH Wednesday service then continuing on the 5 subsequent Monday evenings. 7pm start (Approx 30 Minutes)
Commencing on Wednesday 24th February and the 5 subsequent Wednesday mornings. 10-30 to 11.30am.
Each course can be accessed via ZOOM and also includes the ability to telephone in.
I hope you will find the time to join us to start on this journey for 2021.
Lead by Revd Claire Walker and Revd David Atkinson
This is a 6 session course, with each session approx. 30minutes and based around a reading and reflection on the nature of our lives in the Wilderness. Each meeting will close with a short act of worship.
