Lent & Ash Wednesday – 10th February 10.00am and 7.30pm

CrossIn the church calendar, Lent is the six weeks before Easter.

Ashing will take place at both services – and this is a poignant reminder of both our mortality and our sinfulness, when we hear the words ‘Remember that you are dust and unto dust you shall return; turn away from sin and be faithful to Christ’ as an ash cross is traced on our foreheads.
