Lent 2016

Lent 2016
Tuesday 2nd February 2016
The 10th February marks the beginning of Lent which traditionally is a time of detoxing the body and soul in order to fully appreciate the impact of Easter.

Over the period of Lent the links below will gradually reveal a series of guides and videos to give you some ideas to try and some prayers to pray to help you get ready for Easter.
  • There's an activity sheet for families with children, with a countdown calendar on one side and a list of 15 or so ideas to try.
  • Each week there's a short video with a simple idea for you to pray through each day that week.
  • From around the 15th of February they'll also be a weekly guide with a daily verse for those who would benefit from a specific focus each day.
It might seem like a lot but don't try and do it all; you'll only burn yourself out and not benefit from it.

It would be really good if everyone in the church family could pick at least one of these to follow throughout the Lent season to prepare us for Easter.
