Lent

No sooner is Christmas over than the shops are stocking Easter Eggs and Chocolate Rabbits. Sometimes we really do need to plan for and talk about the next festival long before it happens, so we can be prepared.

The season of Lent will soon be upon us, the time of preparation for Easter. It begins with Ash Wednesday, 22nd February and ends on Maundy Thursday 5th April. This year we, in All Saints, are going to run our own Lent Course, as there will not be a joint one with Churches Together in Sudbury.

Lent provides a good opportunity to strengthen our resolve to worship and serve God. Being part of a house group for these six weeks is one way we can help and encourage each other and get to know some new people. We are going to open some extra groups just for this period, all thinking and talking about the same material. You will find it worthwhile making the effort to join in one of the groups.

To help us plan to provide for as many people as possible there will be a sign up sheet at the back of church each Sunday from 5th February. Please write your name and the days of the week and times you would find it easiest to meet or ring or e-mail me. We may not be able to cater for everyone, but we will try our best.

God bless,
