The term 'Lent' describes the six weeks (40 days) running up to Easter each year. In 2018, Lent started on Wednesday 14th February and goes until Easter Sunday, on 1st April. Lent is traditionally a time in the church for repentance, lament and preparation before Easter. This year, the Anglican Diocese has provided some resources for Christians to use in their private and corporate prayer times. These devotions include a theme for each week of Lent, as well as daily readings and thoughts. If you would like to make use of these, please click here.
