Lent and Easter 2022
Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day), Lent and Holy Week are all part of the journey to Easter Day, the biggest Christian celebration of the year. During Spring lots of people make time to think carefully about their life. For Christians, this means trying to live God’s way and remembering all that Jesus did. You can find out more about our Lent and Easter events and services below.
