Lent 2021

Lent 2021

Monday 15th February 2021

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday which is 17 February this year.

We are marking this with a zoom service starting at 7pm, which will include optional ashing - that is the blessing of ashes and the marking of our foreheads with ash, as a sign of penitence, and as a recognition of our mortality: earth to earth, ashes to ashes etc

We are using these worship resources for Lent including Ash Wednesday here.

This is the link for Ash Wednesday and 10.30 on Sundays via Zoom.

Additonal resources will be included on this page including a help for prayer here.

Especially this year, Lent is not a miserable time: rather it is an opportunity to take stock, give thanks and make changes where necessary. In this way, we will really make Easter special.

Sunday Lent talks on Zoom will still be found under separate Blog entries.
