Lenten studies

The Bible nowhere mentions Lent (or indeed any other seasons or holy days of the liturgical year), which means we are free to observe it, or not.

Why might we choose to observe Lent? What are its purposes? The primary reason is to strengthen our relationship with God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—which will also enhance the ways we relate to one another and to our own selves.


In order to encourage and assist Christians to explore the purpose of Lent and perhaps undertake Lenten disciplines, weekly group discussions are held through the weeks leading up to Holy Week. These Lenten series usually focus on a book of the Bible that helps us to consider carefully the core elements of our faith and how to live out that faith every day.
