Can anyone go to church?
Yes, absolutely! It can be intimidating to walk in the doors of a church, especially if you’ve never gone to church or it’s been a long time. But rest assured, you are very welcome at any of our churches.
In most churches, our main opportunity to gather together is the Sunday morning worship service. Many churches also have different kinds of services and events during the week. You don’t have to go to church on Sunday morning to attend these other activities.
If you want to learn more about a church, you can visit its website or call its office to find out what you can expect. Many churches also post updates, photos and videos from their own Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts. You can also check out our events calendar to see what’s happening around the diocese!
What is Lent?
Lent is a season in the Christian year. It starts on Ash Wednesday and lasts 40 days, excluding Sundays. During Lent, Christians engage in prayer, reflection and self-examination to prepare for Easter.
