St Johns, Johnsonville and Holy Trinity, Ohariu
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.
5.30pm Family gathering with games and pancakes at the Vicar-age (church hall if wet)
Repeated at the Thursday morning service at 10am
Being Disciples: Through Lent with Matthew will run for six weeks on Thursdays in the church hall starting at 7.30pm on 13 March and will be led by our vicar Ben. A fantastic resource, developed here in New Zealand through the Diocese of Christchurch, it draws spiritual and intellectual insights from Matthew’s Gospel (the Gospel for the current lectionary year).
There is no cost in taking part, but for catering and planning purposes please sign up on the clipboard on the back table at church or email the office.
