Today is Ash Wednesday in the Christian calendar and there will be a church service in All Saints Church, Godshill starting at 11:00 am.

Everyone is most welcome

Beginning on Ash Wednesday, Lent is a season of reflection and preparation before the celebrations of Easter. By observing the 40 days of Lent, Christians replicate Jesus Christ’s sacrifice and withdrawal into the desert for 40 days. Lent is marked by fasting, both from food and festivities.
