When is Lent Banner

When is Lent this year?

Lent is a period when Christians prepare themselves for Easter by setting aside time to pray and focus on Christ’s life and death. Beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending 40 days later, many people use Lent as a time to give up vices in their own lives. Often chocolate or Social Media, as well as other luxuries. This self-denial is used as a chance to reflect on Jesus’ own sacrifice for us.

In 2018 Lent begins on the 14th of February, and finishes on the 29th of March.

If you’re looking for a way to learn more about Lent, Easter, Christianity and why Jesus came to earth in the first place, be sure to check out our guide to the new Lent Study guides available from us today.
