Lent at St Thomas's

Coming Alive in Lent

The period of Lent lasts for 40 days (not including Sundays). It is a time when Christians reflect and prepare for the celebrations of Easter. Some people fast, eat frugally or give up treats following the example of Jesus, who fasted for 40 days in the wilderness.

People also give to charity, set aside time to study the bible and meet with other Christians to reflect on Jesus' life and prepare for the events of Easter.


Here at St Thomas's we offer many different ways of observing Lent:

  • Talks, meditations and study sessions led by members of the St Thomas's clergy team
  • Lent lunch talks on 'Our Varied Callings'
  • Monday evening explorations of St John's Gospel through art
  • Special services throughout the Lenten season

Details of these are printed in a special 8-page booklet titled 'Coming Alive in Lent'. Click here to view, download or print a copy.
