There are quite a few choices for people to keep Lent by joining a Weekly Discussion Group, doing their own thing weekly or daily, joining in our Daily Prayers, and a way to Count Your Blessings whilst also helping Christian Aid and their support for the poorest in the world. Charities have found their funding hit especially hard this year, so a chance to help out. Take your pick.
