Dust and Glory – Resources for Lent 2023
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
We think of ourselves as a group of people with Jesus in our lives. Everyone is welcome, without exception. – there is always space for someone else and we’d love you to be with us.
