Kingston upon Thames

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.  (Psalm 51, verse 10)

Lent and Easter in Kingston 2018



Brothers and sisters in Christ: Since early days Christians have observed with great devotion the time of our Lord's passion and resurrection; and prepared for this by a season of penitence and fasting.  By carefully keeping these days, Christians take to heart the call to repentance and the assurance of forgiveness proclaimed in the gospel and so grow in faith and devotion to our Lord.   You are invited, therefore, in the name of the Church, to the observance of a holy Lent, by self-examination and repentance; by prayer, fasting and self-denial; and by reading and meditating on God's holy word.
