What is Lent?
Lent is a six-week period that leads us into celebrating Easter, in a similar way that Advent leads up to Christmas. It is a time typically characterised by confession, fasting, and prayer, asking for God’s help in renewing our commitment to him. For thousands of years, followers of Jesus have observed it as a way to prepare their hearts to commemorate Christ’s death and resurrection in Holy Week and Easter.
Below are some resources and events to help us on this journey.
