Lent 2021

Lent Groups 2021

As part of our Lent observance this year we will once again be running Lent Groups. These will take place on Tuesdays - 8.00pm for 8.15 start - via Zoom. These meetings will be backing up the main efforts this year which focus around the wider Church of England campaign for Lent 2021, #LiveLent: God's Story, Our Story.

The aim behind this year’s resources is to encourage all Christians to think about their calling, how to share their faith and reflect on the difference Christ makes in our lives.

We witness to God’s story and the impact this has made to our story so that others might also find their story taking on new meaning in the light of God’s love. While the current restrictions on daily life necessitated by the pandemic present significant challenges, the suffering and isolation many continue to face make the need for us to share God’s love with our communities greater than ever. Rather than just being a Lenten discipline, this year’s #LiveLent is a joyful invitation to make witness a normal part of the Christian life, the natural overflow of a life lived in devotion to Christ.

If you can, and would like to fit in with the theme, there is free digital access to the daily reflections available via an app, social media, e-mail and on Alexa/ Google Home. There is more information online about how to sign up. Please visit:https://www.churchofengland.org/our-faith/what-we-believe/lent-holy-week- and-easter/livelent-gods-story-our-story-our-lent or search #LiveLent.

The Tuesday evening sessions are designed to support this project, though they will work as stand alone sessions as well. They begin on Tuesday 23rd February and will run through to Holy Week.

The login details are sent out with the weekly mailing (sign up below) or by emailing the Rector - click here.

Holy Week and Easter

We hope that during Holy Week and through Easter we will be able to keep some of our previous practice of Midday Prayer and Compline, the latter with a meditation on the readings taking us through the Passion. This forms an important part of our devotions as we move through the events of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday toward the great celebration of Easter. The details for these services are to follow, and whatever for they take they will accompany our online provision.
