Lent is an important part of the Christian calendar.
The season of Lent lasts for forty days (not including Sundays). It is a time when Christians reflect and prepare for the celebrations of Easter. Some people fast, eat frugally or give up treats following the example of Jesus, who fasted for forty days in the wilderness.
People also set aside time to study the bible, reflect on Jesus’ life and prepare for the events of Holy Week and Easter.
In the sections below there are different ways in which you can take time to do something new during Lent whether it be following the LICC Confidence Devotional Journey, undertaking a “Carbon Fast” or using one of the other resources listed to reflect, pray or fast.
In our church morning services and in our home groups, we’ll be hearing teaching and discussing passages from John’s gospel, as we walk alongside Jesus on the road to his death, and through to his history-changing resurrection.
This Lent, we are encouraging people to take part in LICC’s Confidence Devotional Journey.
In theory, we all know we can be confident in our faith and when we’re gathered together with other Christians, we often feel full of confidence.
But when daily life hits, it can all drain away. How can we change that, with God’s help?
This Lent devotional journey looks to help us grow in faith with a confidence that lasts from Sunday into the rest of your week, so we can boldly join in God’s work wherever we are.
