An Opportunity for a Richer Lent

Wondering what do do this Lent?

Wisdom from the Desert: A Journey Through Lent 2nd March - 14th April 2022

For many of us, the last two years has felt like being in the desert — isolations, lockdowns, being cut off from things that nourish us. The forty days of Lent mirror the forty days Jesus spent in the desert — a trying time, but also one in which the energy of his ministry was growing, about to be unleashed. In the early days of the church, the desert became a crucible for spiritual growth.

This Lent retreat draws on the wisdom of the men and women who sought the spirituality of the desert in these early times and asks how their insights still speak to us today. We are likely to discover, as they often did, that what you learn in the desert is not what you expect.

This series of Lent reflections starts on Ash Wednesday (2nd March) and runs until the Wednesday of Easter week. There is a guided audio reflection for each week in Lent to listen to in your own time. This will also be sent to you in written form, along with other resources which you can dip into during times of reflection throughout the week (Scripture, poetry, art, spiritual writing etc). The aim is to create flexible material you can use in the time you have, which allows you to stay with what is standing out for you on your journey.

To register visit or contact Susan Mansfield on or 07803 620038. The Lent Retreat costs £30 —you can book and pay securely on the website, or email for more payment options. A limited number of “gift” places are available for those who would find it hard to pay, please get in touch for more information.

P.S. If you are a parishioner and want to take part but might struggle for funds, please speak to Canon Tom in complete confidence
