Lent resources

Tarry Awhile invites all to the vibrant tapestry of Black spiritualities, offering wisdom that transforms daily encounters with the divine through music, silence, and shared narratives.

The book includes a few pages of text and 3 reflection questions.

The Church of England’s Watch and Pray resource

The booklet for adults offers a daily Bible verse, a short reflection, an idea for ‘watching’, and a prayer. It invites us to seek God in both familiar and unfamiliar places this Lent: in darkness and in quiet; in movement and migration; in the healing and transforming work of the Spirit; in the weeping of Holy Week and in the joy of Easter morning.
