Lent is a time of reflection and anticipation. It’s a time to scrutinise ourselves and to ask what Jesus is saying to his church today: to ask what needs to die with Christ so that something new might also rise with him to new life.

Central to the whole of our Lent course in 2015 will be our heritage as a Benedictine mission movement and an opportunity to fully explore what a Benedictine Rule of Life might look like.

The flexible nature of the course will mean that people of all ages and in a variety of different contexts will have the chance to grow in discipleship, reading Scripture, studying and praying together. The whole range of material – including sermon resources, specially commissioned liturgy, multi-media and cultural resources – will be challenging and creative, encouraging us to explore for ourselves what the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit are saying about our life together.

This Lent will give us a chance to examine ourselves, our faith communities and our world, and to work out what it looks like to live as a Christian in this society: It means helping people to discover God’s great hospitality, his Kingdom in every aspect of daily life.

It will ask us to consider, what does it mean to live as a Christian in this society’? How can we contribute to making this world reflect God’s hospitality, his kingdom seen in all creation.

We hope that this Lent you will find some answers to these questions and feel ready to continue living the mission of Jesus together.
