Ash Wednesday – No Services

February 17

Person with Ash on Forehead

Today we begin the season of Lent.  Today it is 46 days before Easter Sunday. Lent is a 40-day season (not counting Sundays which are always celebrations of the Resurrection).  The features of Lent are repentance, fasting, reflection, and ultimately celebration. The 40-day period represents Christ’s time of temptation in the wilderness, where he fasted and where Satan tempted him. Lent asks believers to set aside a time to focus on Christ’s life, ministry, sacrifice, and resurrection.
Due to the Level 3 Lockdown there will be no Ash Wednesday services Auckland this year.
