Lent begins with ASH WEDNESDAY which this years falls on Wednesday March 6th.
We will be having the service of PENITENTIAL COMMUNION with the IMPOSITION of ASHES in both of our churches, as follows:
10.00 am St Peters Gildersome
7.30 pm St Pauls Drighlington
The service at St Pauls will include hymns and items from our choir, but otherwise the two services will be identical.
The theme for the service will be ‘THREE bad reasons for keeping Lent – and ONE good reason’. We will be exploring why people ‘keep Lent’ and why some of those reasons make no sense when we consider what the bible says about the subject. And we will reveal one really good reason why we should make the spiritual discipline of Lent! Don’t miss this…
Lent is a powerful and challenging time for all Christians and you are warmly invited to begin your Lenten discipline by coming to one of our services on Ash Wednesday. We look forward to seeing you there!
