Lent Resources 2021
I pray that you may be able to observe a holy Lent this year and I hope that whatever you do, or whatever you give up, may draw you closer to God.
Below are some resources and activities for Lent that you may wish to do. However, whatever you do, be kind to yourself, don’t overburden yourself, take some time to take a walk (if you can) and enjoy the beauty of God’s world.
With every Blessing. Revd Mike (Rector)

Archdeacon Ian challenges us, “Instead of giving something up for Lent, why not try taking something up instead?”
He writes, this Lent, do these two things:
- Follow the 40 reflections each day throughout Lent all of which will be posted on this webpage (click here) and daily on social media, via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
- Take up our 7 mini challenges throughout Lent. Set by the diocesan environment forum, these 7 mini challenges will stretch you to be the change the world needs now, and they can be done at any time during Lent (and beyond). So, instead of giving up something for Lent, why not try taking up one or all of these mini challenges.

Looking for a new way to mark the season of Lent?
This year, you can join The Lent Encounter. It’s a completely free 40-day journey to help you connect more with the Bible and the life of Jesus – AND you don’t have to give up chocolate!
Sign up today and you’ll receive one email from us every day during Lent. These will include Bible verses, beautiful and inspiring images (created especially for you to save as your device screensaver), video reflections and practical challenges.
The Lent Encounter follows the narrative of Andrew Ollerton’s new book ‘The Bible, a story that makes sense of life’. Many of the themes we explore on our journey through Lent, can also be found in this book!
You don’t need the book to get the full Lent Encounter click here for full details.
