Lent Challenge 2021

Lent is traditionally described as lasting for 40 days, in commemoration of the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the desert.

It begins on Ash Wednesday (17th February, this year) and runs to Easter Saturday. If you count, that is 46 days but the Sundays are not included in the number of days of Lent.

The Rev Pete has set us challenges for this Lent:

  • Read the whole of the Gospel of Mark;
  • Walk the boundry of the Parish praying as you go;
  • Pray for each street in the Parish;
      - there are 40 so that's one a day!
  • Challenge yourself to be "Good News" each day.
