Lent is almost upon us and as well as the Lent Courses which start on Monday 22nd, FACT organises Lent Lunches on each Thursday starting this week ! They are at St John's 12.30pm -1.30pm and a different church or churches organises them each week. Doing them on the Thursdays means that we get 7 in ! The proceeds from this £3 head simple meal ( children under 11 eat free and as its half term this week a good chance to get a cheap family lunch out ! ) are split two ways 1 ) Disasters Emergency Committee and 2 ) The FACT Youth Worker Fund.
Last year it raised hundreds for each charity. A simple yet effective way to do the alms and fasting parts of our Lenten good works.
