Why Lent?

We need God's presence to sustain us in our present situations, and to prepare us for the days ahead. Forty days of Lent corresponds to seasons of wilderness wandering, hunger and affliction that are often experienced by the men and women of the Bible. These times of affliction, as we are strengthened by God's presence, prepare us for the mission ahead. We have prepared a Lent devotional called "In the Strength of this Bread" to remind us of God's sustaining presence in all of life.


To help you do this, we have put together a devotional series to do over the next six weeks we have titled "In the Strength of This Food". It's a great activity to engage with as a family, or with a small group of friends. A downloadable pdf of the devotional is available just click the button to download.
