Easter

We’re about to enter Holy Week, the most important week of the church calendar, where we travel together the path of Jesus’ momentous week from Palm Sunday through the crucifixion towards the empty tomb and the joy of resurrection.

Over the weeks ahead we have a combination of in-person services (outside, booking essential) and Open Church times (inside, booking not necessary).

Please remember NOT to come if you have any covid symptoms, or have tested positively recently or been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive or been symptomatic.

Lent

Please find below some resources for Ash Wednesday and Lent.

Bishop Paul is our guest preacher for our Lent Sunday services, online as normal.

And we are encouraging people towards the Diocesan Lent Course on the Rhythm of Life.
You can find all the materials here: https://learning.leeds.anglican.org/course/rhythm-of-life-lent-course/?fbclid=IwAR02JlIUtDcx1x-cZdtZY6CEMmXhXQkIYvPrifvmfy-LVLcA8PQlVZiN_Do

And the course is offered two different times each week on Zoom for six weeks; booking is essential:
Wednesdays at 7.30pm from 24th February – book here.
Thursdays at 10.30am from 25th February – book here.

Don’t forget to get your steps in for our congregational walk to Ghana over the 6 ½ weeks of Lent – you can find more details and sign up here.

We also have a Shrove Tuesday challenge with entries due by Friday 19th February.
