LiveLent 2021

#LiveLent 2021 church resources: God’s Story, Our Story

The Church of England's Lent resources theme for 2021, building on the success of recent years, is entitled #LiveLent: God's Story, Our Story.  It is based on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Lent book for 2021, Living His Story.

From Ash Wednesday (17 February) to Easter Sunday (4 April), there will six reflections for each week, written by Stephen Hance, the Church of England’s National Lead for Evangelism and Witness. Each reflection will include a short passage from the Bible, a brief exploration of the reading, and a prayer. Additionally, each week will have a unifying theme and an action to be taken during the week.  

The daily reflections will be made available through a booklet that will be available to buy from Church House Publishing, as well as a free app, emails, audio and through the Church of England’s social media accounts. Webinars will be offered early in 2021 to help churches plan how to make best use of the range of resources and content for both individuals and groups.
