Ash Wednesday 1Lent begins today, Ash Wednesday.  There will be a special service at 7.30pm when we gather to take our first steps on the journry of Lent.  It's a communion service with a special element whereby we mark the beginning of Lent and the ritual of ashing (having a tiny amount of ash being drawn on to our heads by the vicar in the shape of the cross).  Many people find this to be a valuable and meaningful way of beginning Lent.
Lent is about refocusing our lives and deepening our faith.  Everyone is invited and encouraged to join in at tonight's service.
Simon, Vicar
