Lent and Holy Week at Johnsonville Anglicans

You are welcome to join us for our Lent and Holy Week activities.

Not quite sure what Lent is all about? Are there some questions you are a bit afraid to ask? Then this page provides an explanation of Lent, and includes a video on Lent and Ash Wednesday in 2 minutes and a reflection on Lent in the Southern Hemisphere. You can also check out this explanation from our neighbours at Onslow Anglicans.
