The start of Lent
Ash Wednesday (17th February) marks the beginning of the six-week season of Lent, which takes us up to Easter at the beginning of April.
Because of the pandemic there are no public services in St John’s this year but there will be a service of Holy Communion with Ashes broadcast online on Zoom at 1000. The service will be led by the Revd Elaine Brightwell. You are invited to have some ash prepared with which to ash yourself.
Our donations this Lent will go to the British Red Cross www.redcross.org.uk, to support their international work during the Covid-19 pandemic. For those who are out and about and able to collect one, there are boxes in church; alternatively, why not designate a box at home for this purpose?
