Preparing for Lent

On a wonderful crisp morning at the bandstand we were reminded of the purpose of Lent. After beginning with pancakes, we were invited to reflect on the week and write a confessional statement to God asking forgiveness. These were attached to a balloon which was released skyward. Nails of commitment for lent were hammered into a wooden cross. We finished with communion before retiring to Bridge News Cafe for a warming coffee and catch up.
