The season of Lent commences this Wednesday 14 February with the celebration of Ash Wednesday. There will be our customary Wednesday midweek service at North Balwyn at 10:30am and an informal service in the evening at Kew at 8pm. Both will include the imposition of ashes and the Lord's Supper. Lent is a time that we prepare our hearts for Easter and is marked traditionally by 40 days of increased prayer, fasting and outreach to those in need.
