Lent & Easter 2022
"I will tell you the kind of day I want—a day to set people free. I want a day that you take the burdens off others. I want a day when you set troubled people free and you take the burdens from their shoulders."
As well as the dates for your diaries below, there is another Live Lent series published by the Church of England. "Embracing Justice" will be our theme for Sunday and Wednesday services and on Facebook Live. Rather than hearing the same thing several times if you attend during the week, we'll be looking at different aspects of the weekly theme on Sunday and Wednesday.
There will be two themed junior church sessions during the season, with a KiC bag of resources to go with the Live Lent Challenge Booklet.
Live Lent Booklets and App
To help you follow the theme, you can pick up a "distilled" booklet from church - there are adult and children's versions or download the app for your phone for daily prompts. If you still have the CofE "At the heart of Christmas" app, this will update to become the Live Lent app or you can download it here for Apple
In depth study - paperback and videos
As well as the booklets/app, there is a "full fat" paperback and video series you can follow as individuals or Life Groups for those who would like to read in depth. To order the paperback please ask Natasha or you can find the link to order the book and watch the videos at https://homegroups.org.uk/series/embracing-justice/
The Ladies' Life Group are extending an invitation to anyone who would like to join for the lent course on a Wednesday evening. Please get in touch via the church office or speak to Heather, Kate, Cath, Janet or Alicen N on a Sunday.
Easter Trail at St Giles'
Our Easter story trail will return to St Giles' churchyard from Ash Wednesday through to the end of the Easter holidays or you can play online...
Not forgetting our special services this term...
