lent-newFollowing the collection of daily devotions produced for Advent and Christmas,  a new series for Lent, written by a group of people from the URC’s Northern and North Western Synods has been devised.

Each day you will be emailed one of the readings from the Daily Lectionary together with a short reflection on the reading and a short prayer.  These will start on Ash Wednesday and end on Holy Saturday.

Lent is the season of preparation for Easter, which starts on Ash Wednesday and takes in 40 weekdays before Easter. Lent is a time for self-examination and reflection.

Our annual ecumenical service for Ash Wednesday on 10 February at 8pm will be held this year at St Mark’s church, Wimbledon.  All are most welcome.
