St Bride's: News

The Journey through Lent

We are now well into the season of Lent, the time from Ash Wednesday leading up to Easter, the greatest festival in the Anglican church's calendar. It is, as many are only too aware, a time for fasting in commemoration of Christ's fast in the wilderness described by Matthew in his gospel

The season of lent is the build-up to a great tragedy and an unbelievable miscarriage of justice. And when all seems lost, there is triumph, such as the world has never witnessed since.

At St Bride's, like many Anglican churches throughout the world, Lent is recognised in a very special way. On the six Sundays of Lent, at the Eucharist, six people from within the church and the media - this is the journalists' church - will be speaking 'words for today' as part of our journey through lent. The Rector, Canon David Meara, says the special sermon series focusses on six key concepts which define contemporary culture and the way we aspire to live our lives.

Three senior clergymen make up part of the series, while from the media world, there are three well-known journalists: Michael Brunson, ITN's former political editor, Allan Little, Paris correspondent of the BBC and Mary Ann Sieghart, a columnist on The Times.

St Bride's warmly invites as many people as possible to come and be part of this journey through lent.
