Lent 2021

Bringing the needs and hurts of the world to God and bringing God to the world

Join us as we explore a variety of ways to pray and act this lent… As restrictions may change throughout these days we will adapt our schedules accordingly but will pursue the call to prayer and action.

Ways to Pray

Daily Devotions
Join us each morning as we pray some of the Psalms on the PhoneLine, the website and App.

Daily Bread
A song, prayer or poem every day at 6pm on Facebook, the website and App.

Prayer Zooms
A time and space for prayer and reflection together fortnightly on Wednesdays at 8pm (17/2, 3/3, 17/3).

Prayer Garden and round church
After a rough winter the Prayer Garden will be restored as we move into spring. Why not walk round this developing space as a way to pray?

Church Open for Prayer
Mondays 7pm-8pm and Thursdays 10am to 11am
The church is open twice a week to provide a space for people to come in and pray. Nothing will be led from the front and there will be prayers on the seats which people can use. Come and go throughout these times and follow the procedures to keep everyone safe.

Ways to Act

Do Something for Someone
We want to encourage people to do something for someone. How can you show God’s love to those in your circle of people and those you have contact with? Send a message, write a card, send flowers or a gift - whatever it is, it doesn’t have to be a big or grand gesture, just do something for someone.

Support Local and Small businesses
Find some way to show support for local and small businesses this lent. We have a growing relationship with our Craft and Food stallholders and you can see them all here.

If you have never done it before why not visit The Refill Quarter on Belmont Road (Covid restrictions permitting) this lent and you can support local business and cut down on your waste at the same time.

The Larder and All Nation Ministries
At Belvoir we partner with The Larder and All Nations Ministries. Why not find out more about the work of these organisations and how you can get involved?

Daily Devotions, Weekly Action
Each week we will be suggesting something specific in our daily devotions that you can do to take action.

The Prayer Course

Alongside Scattered Together we will be looking deeper at this theme through the Prayer Course on Unanswered Prayer. This resource from 24-7 Prayer is a 30 minute video and discussion guide.

There are 3 ways to do the prayer course at Belvoir this lent:

1. On your own - we will have a link to the videos each week that you can watch (discussion might be a bit harder though).
2. Join with one of our huddles for lent. Huddles meet fortnightly on zoom and will be looking at 3 sessions from the prayer course through lent.

Tuesdays (23/2,9/3, 23/3) "Cairnshill" Huddle Led by Adrian and Janice McCartney
Wednesdays (24/2, 10/3, 24/3) "Ballygowan" Huddle Led by Michael Wardlow
Wednesdays (24/2, 10/3, 24/3) "Knock" Huddle Led by Chris Bennett

3. The Full Monty. Each Thursday through lent (starting 25/2) we will be running the course in full (5 sessions).

To find out more about any of these options email office@belvoirparish.co.uk.
