Lent services and activities

Lent is a time when Christians reflect and prepare for the celebrations of Easter. Some people fast, eat frugally or give up treats following the example of Jesus, who fasted for forty days in the wilderness. People also give to charity, set aside time to study the Bible and meet with other Christians to reflect on Jesus’ life and prepare for the events of Holy Week and Easter.

This year all of the books of the Apocrypha will be read on every weekday from Ash Wednesday to Palm Sunday – three chapters at 10.00am and three at 4.00pm.
Everyone is welcome to come and listen or to take part in reading the 172 chapters.

The Apocrypha dates from the period between the Old and New Testaments.
Martin Luther wrote that these books are not held equal to the sacred scriptures, and yet are useful and good for reading.
