A Pancake Diet?

Home » News » A Pancake Diet?

As you tuck in to your pancakes today, Shrove Tuesday, it signals that tomorrow, Wednesday 1st March, is Ash Wednesday and the start of Lent. We will have an Ash Wednesday service in the church at 7pm that will include communion and 'ashing'. This involves the burning of last year's palm crosses, mixing them with oil and marking the sign of the cross on worshippers' foreheads to denote that their sins are forgiven.
