Lent & Easter
We begin our observation of Lent with our services on Ash Wednesday. We hold one during the day which replace our SEBO mid-week service and the other at 8.00pm in Church. Both services are communion based and include the imposition of ashes.
Over the following weeks we hold our Lent Course – which gives us an opportunity to look at an aspect of our Christian lives in more depth as we take time out of our busy schedules to go deeper with God in preparstion for Easter. The course is generally held one morning or afternoon and then repeated one week day evening. Please do check our Events page for more details.
