A reminder of what we have been doing during Lent
This year's Church of England Lent Resource is Live Lent Embracing Justice. For each day there is a short reading, a reflection and a prayer, which come together to help us to consider God's justice in a struggling world, and how we can respond personally and together.
Why not set aside 10 minutes each day to hear and respond to God's view on how the world should be?
You can receive daily emails, use your smart speaker or get daily updates via the app. Here's how.
If you'd like to talk over your reflections and hear what others think as well, then one of our Lent Groups will be for you!
The Study Guide for Weeks 5 and 6 is here. We will not be meeting as groups during Holy Week so the thoughts for week 6 are for our own personal reflection.
If you want to look at week 4, it's here.
The material for week 3 can be found by clicking here.
The material for week 2 can be found here.
The material for week 1is available here.
