Lent Group

Lent Group - 2021

This year, given the Covid restrictions, our Lenten preparations will be somewhat different! However, we are planning an online Lent Group using Zoom and have some materials to recommend. The Lenten observance will begin with a Zoom Ash Wednesday service at 6pm on Wednesday 17th February, and then we will continue to meet on Wednesdays at 6pm until Holy Week.

We are going to be following the Church of England’s ‘Live Lent’ material, which this year is entitled ‘God’s story, our story’. There is a daily observance which takes the form of a short bible reading, a thought for the day and prayer, and is available in booklet format and also via an app which can be downloaded from https://www.churchofengland.org/resources/liv elent-2021-church-resources-gods-story-our- story

The daily observance is based on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book for 2021, Living His Story by Hannah Steele. I would recommend the book if you want to take your thinking deeper during Lent, but the weekly discussions will not necessarily require you to have the book at a minimum you will need the Live Lent booklet or the app. If you would like a booklet, please contact Revd Diane and one will be sent to you.
