Sunday's Service

Every Sunday, across the world, Christians share an agreed three year cycle of Bible Readings in Sunday worship, this is called the Common Lectionary. We offer materials including prayers bible study and worship resources for each one of these Sunday's via our Lectionary Bible Notes Section.

What does Lent mean to you? No biscuits? Giving up chocolate? Resisting cream cakes for a few weeks? Why give something up? Why do without? What is it for? What has it got to do with Lent anyway?

The word Lent comes from an Anglo-Saxon word: 'lencten', meaning 'spring'. In England we are in that time of year when in Saxon times people started to appreciate the lengthening daylight. This period has traditionally led up to baptism, a period of repentance and instruction. A time when those who had formerly worshipped pagan gods could make a very definite break with the past. Just as Jesus went into the wilderness for 40 days, so Christians have used this time to embark on a period of spiritual exploration and hopefully growth. You may decide to fast, pray a bit more, perhaps read a book or attend a special course at a local church. Whatever you do, may you find yourself closer to God over the coming weeks, so that when Easter arrives you are really ready to proclaim the risen Lord.

the cross is the way

 

Each morning and each evening
let the peace of the Father, be ours.
Each day and each night
let the peace of the Son be ours.
Each dawn and each dusk
let the peace of the Spirit be ours.
Let the blessing of the three in one be ours;
both now and for ever. Amen.
Carmina Gadelica
