Lent and Easter 2024

“the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Jesus came to change lives.

Since the earliest times, followers of Jesus have used Lent to examine their own hearts and lives.

  • We don’t do it to wallow in guilt – because Jesus’ forgiveness sets us free.
  • We don’t do it for self-improvement – because only Jesus’ spirit can change us.
  • We do it so that we can bring our whole selves to Him for mercy and transformation.

Ash Wednesday (14th Feb)

Join the congregations or St Leonard, Norwood at 10am or St Bernard, Parson Cross at 7pm for an ‘ashing’ service.

Lent course (5 Thursday evenings starting 7pm on 22nd Feb)

Join us at Christ Church for a course that will help us to think and prepare for Easter. There will be short videos, time to reflect, time to talk (if you want) and a warm welcome.

Jesus came to change the world.

Since the earliest times, followers of Jesus have used Easter to remember:

  • His death – the sacrifice he willingly made to remove our sin and shame
  • His resurrection – the victory he won over death bringing the promise of new life

Whether you’re already a follower of Jesus, near to Him, or still far away you are very welcome to join our celebrations.
