Lent & Holy Week 2024

Lent & Holy Week 2024

Ash Wednesday takes place on 14th February this year, marking the first day of Lent, the season of penitence leading up to Easter. We gather to have our foreheads marked with ash crosses (pictured).

During the weeks of Lent until Holy Week, the church is collecting breakfast food & drinks for the Salvation Army, which feeds over 80 people in need every day. Let’s help them by donating sugar, whole milk, ground coffee, black tea, ColaCao powder, sandwich fillings (meat slices, cheese slices), eggs, small individual cereal packets, napkins, and paper coffee cups (for takeaway). Please bring your donations to church and leave them in the upstairs mezzanine level. Thank you!

Here is the programme for Lent & Holy Week at St George’s:

Lent Reflections
This series of Lent Reflections will be the focus of the Sunday morning sermons and Sunday evening Zoom Cafés, and the subsequent Wednesday morning Bible studies and Wednesday evening Zoom teachings. This will also serve as the preparatory material for those wishing to be confirmed ahead of the Confirmation Service with Bishop Alison scheduled for Sunday 2nd June at St George’s.

  • Lent Reflection 2: Why the Creeds (Our Beliefs), 25th & 28th February
