Lent 2022

The season of Lent

Starts on Ash Wednesday 2nd March 2022 and lasts for forty days (not including Sundays). It is a time when Christians reflect and prepare for Holy Week and the celebrations of Easter. Some people fast, eat frugally or give up treats following the example of Jesus, who fasted for forty days in the wilderness. People also give to charity, set aside time to study the bible and meet with other Christians to reflect on Jesus’ life


To mark the start of Lent we will have two special services at All Saints on Ash Wednesday.

9.30 am – Said Holy Communion Service with Ashing

7.30 pm – Sung Holy Communion Service with Ashing


 


Lent Lunches

Soup lunches will be held in church every Saturday during Lent from 12:00 – 1:00 pm starting on 12th March. Please come to join us to break bread together and share in fellowship. Everyone will be made most welcome.

There will be an opportunity to pray for Ukraine.

£3 per person for soup, bread and cheese to raise funds for our lent Charity.

 

 

 

 


Our Lent Course at The Vicarage

This year we will be holding a Lent course over five weeks, beginning at 7 pm on Thursday the 10th March at the Vicarage.

If you would like to attend please signup on the list at the back of church.

A booklet is available for those attending the group or for personal use at home.  The hope is that it will help you to deepen your relationship with God as you explore some of the themes of Lent.  There is a theme for each week and a daily scripture reading.  Take 5 or 10 minutes each day to read the verses, ask God what he would like you to learn from them and try and take time not only to talk to him but listen too.

There is space in this booklet to jot down notes as you go along. There are some questions to prompt your thoughts and discussion, but take time to listen to God to see if he wants to take you in another direction.  There are no right or wrong answers to the questions. Above all, this is a time for you to spend with God, who desires to meet with you as much as you desire to meet with him.

I hope and pray that this course will be a blessing to you as you spend time with God this Lent.

With Every Blessing,  Sherine
