Beginning on Ash Wednesday for 40 days, Lent gives us time to pause, to pray, to reflect and turn our hearts and minds back towards God. By observing this time, we replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert before the celebration of Christ’s triumph over sin and death at Easter.
Lent is often marked by fasting and by giving something up. By depriving ourselves of some small pleasure or indulgence, we offer that sacrifice up to God. An experience of want, however temporary, can help us to appreciate the true abundance in our lives.
But what if rather than giving something up, you could commit to taking something on? We have lots to do during Lent and we’re challenging you to get involved. Attend the B.R.I.C.K. course, book a time slot for 24/7 prayer, read the daily reflections – everyday! Attend our special Lent services…
Plug into Lent and let’s live it together as a family.
