We are in the season of LENT. 

The forty days of Lent (the six weeks and four days prior to Easter, not counting Sundays) commemorate the 40 days Jesus spent at the start of his Ministry, fasting in the wilderness, and being tempted by Satan.  Lent is a time , with the words “Repent, and believe in the Gospel” or “Remember that you are dust, and to dust you shall return“.  The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of Christians for the Passion and Crucifixion of Jesus Christ on Good Friday and His Resurrection three days later on Easter Sunday.  Lent is thus a time of prayer, penance and repentance of our sins, and a time for alms giving, atonement and self-denial.  We welcome all to join us at our worship during Lent when we will reflect on Lenten Themes. 

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
