Lent is the period of the Christian year in which we follow Jesus’ journey to the cross. It is often marked as a period of penitence and reflection. There are a number of ways in which we can mark our journey through Lent this year.

Marking Lent at Trinity 2019

Ash Wednesday Communion Service

Wednesday 6 March 8.00 pm

The beginning of Lent is marked with a Service of Holy Communion in which those who attend will be marked with ashes on their forehead. This is a reflective service and those who attend usually find it an extremely meaningful service.

Lent Bible Studies

Churches Together in Finchley arrange two ecumenical bible studies during Lent. One is held at Trinity Church on Wednesday afternoons at 1.30 pm. The other is held at the home of Claire Disbrey, 63 Holdenhurst Ave, N12 at 7.30 pm, also on Wednesdays.

The course begins on Wednesday 13 March and continues for five weeks.

The theme of the five week course this year is ‘Daring to see God now’.

Mark’s Gospel begins with Jesus ‘proclaiming the Good news of God’. But, what is this ‘good news’, and who is it for? Taking Mark 1.14-15 as a starting point, this course raises important questions about change, repentance, and how we can become in ourselves living evidence of the good news. Examples are taken from the rest of Mark’s Gospel as well as contemporary and historic Christians.

The course booklet is written by Bishop Nick Baines. The accompanying audio CD contains contributions from Prof Keith Ward, Rachel Lampard, Bishop David Wilbourne and Cathy Galvin.

Lent Lunches

Churches Together in Finchley also arrange Lent Lunches on Fridays during Lent. The lunches are from 12.30 to 1.45 pm. A simple lunch is served and those who attend are invited to contribute to a charity supported by Churches Together in Finchley.

Jars of Change

Once again we are inviting all at Trinity Church to support the Jars of Change appeal supporting WaterAid through Lent. This is a simple idea in which we ask members and friends to keep a jam jar at home and collect money for WaterAid during Lent.

This is what WaterAid says:

“Lent is a time for giving up small luxuries in life. But imagine if you had to give up more important things – education, employment or hope for the future. All because you do not have clean water close to home.

This is the reality for 1 in 9 people around the world. Hours spent collecting water, or days wasted from ill health, means children miss out on school and parents cannot work.

For children especially, clean water can be the difference between a full education and struggling to keep up in class. The difference between enjoying a happy childhood with friends, or risking your life on long walks for water.”

On Easter Sunday we will collect all of the money in and give the total to WaterAid.
