Lent 2023

The season of Lent

Starts on Ash Wednesday 22nd February 2023 and lasts 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

7.00 pm – Sung Holy Communion Service with Ashing

Lent Lunches

Our Lent Lunches will start on Saturday, 25th February 2023, and continue every Saturday before Easter from 12.00-1.00pm in the Mary Bass Room. The cost is £3.50 all profits will be donated to our Lent charity SOLDAS (The South Lincolnshire Domestic Abuse Charity.

All are welcome, please come to join us for a delicious lunch of homemade soup.

Volunteers are required for soup making and help on the day, if you can help please speak to Lynne Barkes.

Our Lent Groups

 This year, we will be running two Lent Groups covering a course written by the diocese relating to Time to Change Together.

The course will run at 10.30 am on Wednesday mornings beginning on 1st March, and at 7 pm on Thursday evenings beginning on 2nd March. Both courses will take place in the Mary Bass Room lasting for 5 weeks.

This is an informal opportunity to learn more about where God is leading us and what that means for each of us during Lent.

All welcome. 

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

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

Dust & Glory – Lent Reflections

Dust and Glory encourages us to take a fresh look at the frustrations and failings that every day brings, seek to learn from them and grow closer to God through them.

An accompanying children’s version is also available to help children and their families explore how we can live well together, offering a simple daily activity designed to explore the weekly themes.

The app is available to download now for free.
