Lent Resources From Previous Years

2016 Lent Resources

The Rev’d Simon Crook writes in preparation for Lent 2016

As many of you know, I trained at Mirfield Theological College, alongside the Monks at the Monastery. Their services are all very beautiful, and open to the public. I will be going to compline there every Tuesday in Lent, taking with me as many of you as I can persuade. Compline begins at 915pm and lasts only about 20 minutes. We will pick people up from their homes and drop them off as it is quite late.

Please speak to the Vicar, Curate or Church Wardens – there will be a sign up sheet in church

Please add in to the diary/calendar:

Tuesday 16th Feb, Compline at Mirfield, 915pm
Tuesday 23rd Feb, Compline at Mirfield, 915pm
Tuesday 1st March, Compline at Mirfield, 915pm
Tuesday 8th March, Compline at Mirfield, 915pm
Tuesday 15th March, Compline at Mirfield 915pm

Look at Lent through a film. Find the Christ figure or the salvation moment.

Over the last couple of year during Lent we have offered contemporary and classical music as a resource by which we may listen and be inspired. Last year a number of tracks were used during evensong to similar effect.

This year there will be a simple Mass based around four different choices of music, chosen by individuals of different tastes and styles.

Each Mass will have space at the different points of the liturgy when we will rest and listen – letting the words and/or music speak to our souls.
