On Wednesday, 6th March (Ash Wednesday) we will begin the season of Lent together – six weeks to prepare as a Church family and as individuals for the great celebration of Easter on 21st April.
On Ash Wednesday, there will be two opportunities to begin Lent by sharing Holy Communion and receiving ashes as a sign of repentance. We will make the ash from last year’s Palm Sunday crosses – if you have a palm cross, could you bring it to Church and leave it at the back by Sunday 3rd March?
Charles and Emma will also be hosting a Lent Book Group at the Vicarage on 5 Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm (12th March-9th April). Each week, we will meet and discuss a chapter of Paula Gooder’s Let Me Go There: The Spirit of Lent. It’s a very accessible and insightful book that will help us on our Lenten journey. Please speak to Charles if you’re interested. You’ll also need to get hold of a copy of the book
