Lent (26 February – 9 April 2020)
Lent is the 40-day period before Easter, beginning with Ash Wednesday. During Lent Christians may fast, or give up some of their usual routine, to give time to personal examination and to reflect on their relationship with God.
Dumbarton Lent Study Groups
We are arranging 4 sessions of a Lent Study group this year for the Dumbarton Linkage, which will be slightly different in format from previous years. All the sessions will be in people’s houses and they will be led by members of the congregations. The aim is to have people talking to each other, and talking about things that matter to them, and to everyday life. The meetings will last about an hour/ hour and a half, and will have tea/coffee at some point during them. Please come along and try them.
Dumbarton Christian Aid Lent Lunches
Will be on Thursday s between 12.00pm -1.00pm in the main hall at Riverside; homemade soup bread & cheese tea/coffee will be served. Cost £3.00 all welcome. *** 18th March 2020 *** Lent Lunches now cancelled *** Donations may still be made via the church office ***
