Watch and Pray - Lent reflections

Watch and Pray invites us to seek God in both familiar and unfamiliar places this Lent: in darkness and in quiet; in movement and migration; in the healing and transforming work of the Spirit; in the weeping of Holy Week and in the joy of Easter morning.

Our award-winning Church of England campaign app for both iOS and Android – including daily audio – is now available to download. Anyone who has the Church of England’s #FollowTheStar app already installed will automatically get the Lent update.
