The Church of England’s Lent resources theme for 2021 is ‘God’s Story, Our Story’ based on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book Living His Story by Hannah Steele. Both the book and the accompanying daily reflections encourage all Christians to think about their calling, how to share their faith and reflect on the difference Christ makes in our lives.
From Ash Wednesday (17 February) to Easter Sunday (4 April), there are six reflections for each week, written by Stephen Hance, the Church of England’s National Lead for Evangelism and Witness. Each reflection includes a short passage from the Bible, a brief exploration of the reading, and a prayer. Additionally, each week has a unifying theme and an action to be taken during the week.
The daily reflections are available through the booklet available to buy from Church House Publishing, as a free app, emails, audio and through the Church of England’s social media accounts. The app version will include a daily Family Activity, offering a simple way to explore a story or a theme from the day’s reflection.
