Lent…. It’s all about hope!

Lent is a time of reflection and penitence, but so often we forget that it is also about anticipation and hope.

This year we would like to focus on hope, especially after the last couple of years. 

This Lent we would like you to come along and enjoy the delicious lunches in Langtoft and Baston. We would also like you to come along to our midweek services.  They are only half an hour long but afterwards we would like you to stay and share coffee and biscuits and chat about what hope we have in this day and age, looking at the Bible readings and unpacking them together.

On our website and FB pages we will have messages of hope, favourite poems, readings and some stories that we hope will inspire you in this special season.

If you would like to know any more please get in touch with Carolyn:ness.rector@gmail.com
