Lent is for Christians a very important time of preparation in readiness for Easter. At St Nicholas Church we are providing several opportunities to help people get involved in Lent 2021
Lent Foodbank challenge
I want to begin by saying thank you to everyone who contributed to the Reverse Advent Calendar which collected a great big ¾ tonne of food for Foodbank and members of our local community. It was an amazing effort and a great example of just how amazingly generous the community is. As we look forward, we want to build on this wonderful success and use Lent as an opportunity for us to support those who need our help most. So, this is how were going to do it.
The word Lent might be new to some of you so I thought I would give a brief outline.
Lent is the period of six weeks which starts Ash Wednesday which this year is 17th February and lasts for 40 days not including Sundays leading up to Easter. Lent is a time for us to take stock of our lives and to look to doing some things differently, even if for a little while. It could be that usually you give up chocolate or alcohol or something else. However, as well as giving up something Lent is for some a time of taking up something, some ideas might include phoning someone you have not seen for while or sending a card or volunteering at a local project.
Here at St. Nicholas church, we are asking people to consider giving away some items of food to help distribute to Foodbank and the local community. You can decide how often you give and I have included a Calendar here >>> for people to follow. It also includes the major festivals that happen during Lent. All food collected can be brought to St. Nicholas Church on Saturday 27th March from 10-12am. Thank you for your support it is very much appreciated. Revd. Marg and all at St. Nicholas and St Peter’s Church
