Lent is a season of forty days, not counting Sundays, which begins on Ash Wednesday (14th Feb) and ends on Easter Saturday. The forty days represents the time Jesus spent in the wilderness, enduring the temptation of Satan and preparing to begin his ministry. During this period it is common in many traditions to use this period to reflect on the ministry of Christ up to His crucifixion.
Churches Together in Brierley Hill are holding a series of Friday evening Lent reflections based on the Stations of the Cross . These are hosted by various churches and are just one hour in length – 7.30pm – 8.30pm
