Resources for Lent & Easter

#LiveLent: Dust and Glory

This Lent we are all invited to explore how we can live well with the mess of everyday life.
Dust and Glory encourages us to take a fresh look at the frustrations and failings that every day brings and, rather than pretending we can always avoid them, seek to learn from them and grow closer to God through them.

Archbishops of Canterbury and York

Dust and Glory: A Lent journey of faith, failure and forgiveness is the Church of England’s Lent theme for 2023. This year’s resources are informed and inspired by the Archbishop of Canterbury’s 2023 Lent Book, Failure: What Jesus said about sin, mistakes and messing stuff up (SPCK) by Bishop Emma Ineson, who has also co-written the daily reflections booklet for adults (CHP).

The 40 Short Reflections leading up to Easter that are available
– on the #LiveLent App (Android / iOS)
– through an email newsletter
– as audio via smart speaker

40 Family Activities can be accessed
