Lent 2021

Lent is a six-week period which leads up to Holy Week and to Easter. Many Christians find it very helpful to use Lent as an opportunity to focus on Jesus and the reason for his death and resurrection.

John tells us in his gospel that Jesus came so that we "may have life, and have it to the full(10:11). He wrote his gospel for the specific purpose that readers of it "might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life" (20:31).

Daily readings and blogs on John chpts.2-12 can be read on this website, starting in the first week of Lent on Mon.15th Feb. Blogs on John 1 start on Fri.12th.

Each week also includes a short talk on that section of John 2-12, by the speaking team of Emmanuel Church, Saltburn.

For full details and to hear the weekly talks, see the LENT 2021 page.

A Daily Prayer

Christ, as a light illumine and guide me.

Christ, as a shield overshadow me.

Christ under me; Christ over me;

Christ beside me on my left and my right.

This day be within and without me,

lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.

Be in the heart of each to whom I speak;

in the mouth of each who speaks unto me.

This day be within and without me,

lowly and meek, yet all-powerful.

Christ as a light; Christ as a shield;

Christ beside me on my left and my right.
