Sensory Lent and Easter
Our Sensory Lent and Easter experience focusses on our personal journey throughout Lent. The focus is on an experiential approach involving our senses.
Lent is a period of 40 days beginning on Ash Wednesday and ending on the Saturday before Resurrection Sunday. There are many church and denominational traditions for Lent and while our Sensory Lent and Easter acknowledges some of these traditions, it also offers a contemporary approach. Sensory Lent and Easter is a journey of refreshement of our faith and deepening our connection with God. Throughout the series we'll focus on putting God in the centre of our lives, praying and giving.
The daily sensory guide is presented as a printable calendar with a sensory prompt each day. The prompts will pick up the themes of praying, giving and focussing on God.
There are also seven short reflections with experiential activities and responses for each of the key days, beginning on the day before Lent begins, also known as Shrove Tuesday, and ending on Resurrection Sunday.
Material is delivered over five different emails throughout Lent, with each email arriving a few days before the relevant day(s).
