Lent is an important season in the church calendar when we prepare to hear anew the good news of Easter. This Lent (6th March – 16th April) we are invited to reflect and renew, to refocus our lives on the things that will help us to reconnect with Jesus. The good news of Easter is more than just the death and resurrection of Jesus, and this Easter we are going to explore some other aspects of Easter to see what they reveal. It will be a time for refraining, reaching out, reflection , remembrance and rejoicing as we embrace Easter’s power to redeem and to resurrect! Are you ready for this?
This page contains the resources that our church is using during Lent 2019 to re-imagine Lent and Easter.
As we begin this journey through Lent, let us take some time to think about our own journey with Jesus. What does it mean to follow Jesus? What does it mean to be real? Are we willing to take up our own cross and follow Jesus?
Lent is traditionally a time when people “give up” something in order to make room for God? How can this traditional spiritual practice help us to prepare for Easter?
Much of the Easter story is about Jesus reaching out to others. Why has Evangelism become such as hard thing to do in today’s world? Why is it important for us to share Jesus with others?
