Ash Wednesday

Ash Wednesday this year is on 26th February. This is the traditional start of Lent, the season leading up to Easter. In the Benefice there will be two Communion services which will include the opportunity for ashing for those who wish to do so: 11.00am in Pilton Church and 7.30pm in Dinder Church. This is an ancient tradition when ashes were made out of last year’s Palm Crosses and the sign of the cross is made on people’s foreheads. It is a symbolic reminder of our need for God’s forgiveness in our lives.
