Lent

Lent in the Heart of Norfolk Group of churches

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday which this year is 6th March. There is a benefice service of Holy Communion with the Imposition of Ashes at Holy Inncocents, Foulsham at 11am and All Saints, Wood Norton at 7.30pm, to which all are welcome. We begin our Lenten journey together, turning our faces towards the Cross of Good Friday and the glorious celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus at Easter.

 

On Wednesdays before the evening course session there will be a simple service of Compline at St Mary's, North Elmham at 7pm.

The five-week study course looks at the radical nature of the gospel, with a special focus on the church in India.

"We might think the prophetic voice belongs to the Old Testament, but we want to show there are still many prophets to be found throughout the world church today.

"The prophets’ voices are challenging because they alert us to issues we might want to ignore - they call us to be like Jesus, who stood on the margins, comforting the oppressed and challenging those who are comfortable.
