So we set out on our Lenten journey, starting with a service of Holy Communion with DIY ashing. This will be a quiet and meditative communion service, as we begin Lent by coming before God in penitence and faith, conscious of our many failings and his amazing grace. Your service sheet can be viewed or downloaded here.
If you are able to prepare a mixture of oil and ash – traditionally ash from the burning of last year’s palm crosses – in order to sign yourselves with the sign of the cross, that would be grand. Otherwise, just a little oil will be fine, to remind us of our baptismal vows and the pilgrimage of our lives. We look forward to welcoming you to this service, and walking with you through this period of reflection and contemplation which is Lent.
