Lent Resources and Easter Services 2021

This Lent, like pretty much everything at the moment, is going to look quite different. But the meaning of Lent remains; a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter and an opportunity to replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days.

Below you will find you some resources to help you in this 40 day period to reflect, replicate and prepare.
