Lent 2021

The season of Lent starts on Ash Wednesday 17th February 2021 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.

Despite not being able to meet in church the year, there are so many ways to still be involved with this year’s #LiveLent.

Here at All Saints, we will have a deanery Lent Group running on Mondays, starting on 22nd February at  7:00  to 8:00 pm, led by our Lincoln School of Theology students – each one sharing a different spirituality. The group meeting will take place on Zoom. If you are interested in joining please email rosamund.seal@btinternet.com and she will ensure you are sent the link to enable you to join.

You can also sign up for free daily e-mail reflections, download the #LiveLent App, or order printed booklets. From Ash Wednesday there will be six reflections for each week. Each reflection will include a short passage from the Bible, a brief exploration of the reading, and a prayer. Additionally, each week will have a unifying theme and an action to be taken during the week. Click here for more information and to sign up for email reflections

There will be a special Broadcast Service from All Saints on Ash Wednesday available on our Worship from Home page.
