Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of Lent, a season of 40 days for personal reflection, prayer, and spiritual exploration. It mirrors the time Jesus spent in the desert, seeking God and the true meaning of his life.
The service has been a regular feature of the church’s calendar since the very beginning, and it involves burning the previous year’s Palm Crosses, forming a paste, and marking this on the foreheads of those committing to the season.
The service will last for 30 minutes and will be followed by the Stressed in the City meditation group. All are welcome.
The schedule for the evening is as follows:
Ash Wednesday Service: 5.30 – 6.30pm
Meditation group: 6.30 – 7.30pm
