In the church calendar, Lent is the six weeks before Easter.
This year it begins on the 10th February at St Leonard’s with two services for Ash Wednesday (10.00am and 7.30pm). 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.
Tickets £8 (Under 16 £5. Under 5 Free) including Tea & Cakes @ 3.00pm performance, refreshments & Snacks @ 7.30 performances. Licensed Pay Bar (Wine & Beer) at 7.30pm. The audience will be arranged round tables.
The Alpha course is for people who don’t go to church or who haven’t been to church in a long time and are interested in the Christian faith; but anyone can do it – just as a ‘refresher’ course. Alpha is completely free, and it is also free of expectations.
