This year we decided to hold our Ash Wednesday Service at 9-9.30pm in the hope it might suit some students. Thankfully our ‘regulars’ continued to turn up and so did some of our students – around 30 people in all.
We used three ‘Stations of Reflection’ followed by a liturgy in which people were anointed with ashes. All in all, it worked well and the material is posted here in case others find it helpful.
‘Turn around,’ ‘lay aside’ and ‘take up,’ three active verbs to help our journey with Jesus through Lent.
