LENT

LENT

The season of Lent has been observed by Christians for many centuries, giving Christians an opportunity to reflect upon their relationship with God and to look critically at the way they had been living their lives.

At St Margaret’s there are opportunities this Lent to attend the two joint bible study groups that run throughout the year (see website for contact details and dates). The Prayer Times, listed on the calendar, will also include a time of prayer and reflection on a bible passage throughout the season of Lent.
