On Wednesday 14th February we will be holding a service for Ash Wednesday. The first full day of Lent. This will be a Communion Service and will commence at 7.30 p.m.. The Service will be led by Rev. Tony Parkinson. The service will be followed by refreshments and a short discussion on a theme connected to the service.
Lent is a time of reflection (and fasting) on the way to Easter which remembers Jesus’s forty days in the Desert. Ash Wednesday is actually a few days more than forty days before Easter as in previous times people were allowed not to fast on Sundays so Sundays were not counted as days. It is coincidence that Ash Wednesday happens to fall on Valentines day this year.
