Lent and Easter

 
Lent gives us 40 days to prepare for Easter Day, when we remember again that Jesus rose from the dead, that he is the light of the world, who has dealt once and for all with the darkness of the world and of human hearts.
 
We've got a range of resources to help you on your Lenten journey.
 
40Acts is a daily challenge to act generously through Lent. Each day a simple challenge is offered to do something for someone else. Watch the video below for inspiration and to find out more and sign up to the 40Acts challenge, click here.

 

 

 
 
And if you want a daily bible reflection, the Church of England has produced the outstanding Lent Pilgrim resource with a prayer, action and reflection based on the beatitudes for each of the 40 days of Lent. You can receive them every day by email, or download the free app or we will have copies of the Lent Pilgrim book in both our churches for anyone who would like a copy.
 

And if you'd like to give time to being with other people during Lent, we are running two lent groups which, 
this year, will use an excellent resource to look at music, singing and worship. One of the groups will take place on Wednesdays at 7:30pm in Sacred Heart Church, Beresford Rd, Goudhurst and the other on Fridays at 11:30am in St Mary's, Goudhurst. You can tell us you'd like to come by signing up here
 
And Lent is also a good time to slow down and to give more time to being with people - rather than the To Do list. To help us all slow down and spend time with others we run our Lent lunches. They take place every Saturday during Lent, starting on 9 March between 12:30-2:00 in St Mary's Church. There's a simple, home cooked meal of soup, bread and cheese with other people from local communities. Each lunch ends with a brief thought for the day. It's all free, and any donations go to a designated charity.
