There are many resources available to help you make the most of this season of prayer and renewal. Below are just a few to explore:
Midweek reflection: the Passion according to Mark
Each week during Lent, we are all invited to read a portion of Mark’s Gospel, tracing the events leading up to Jesus’ death. This reading is also used at our midweek Eucharists, and a video reflection is posted each Wednesday.
- Week 1: Mark 14.1-25
- Week 2: Mark 14.27-52
- Week 3: Mark 14.53-72
- Week 4: Mark 15.1-20
- Week 5: Mark 15.21-41
- Week 6: Holy Week
Anglican Board of Mission: God was on both sides of the beach
On the 1st of July 1871, the London Missionary Society boats arrived in the Torres Strait and, in an amazing act of reciprocal kindness and courage, were welcomed by the local people. 150 years on, the Gospel has taken root in the Torres Strait and a powerful local church exists, largely unknown to the rest of the Anglican community.
The voices we will be hearing will be those of (among others) Queensland Anglicans, Aunty Dr Rose Elu, (who has been recently been awarded Queensland Senior Australian of the Year 2021) and the Rev’d Canon Victor Joseph. Spend time ‘sitting’ with Aunty Rose and Victor as they help us understand the history, the present and the future of the Indigenous church in a unique way.

Common Grace: Jesus + Justice
Justice is a reflection of a life following Jesus. It comes from the real change that happens when we draw close to him. It is God ushering in his kingdom right now; first in our hearts, then in our relationships, our communities, our world. Justice becomes a natural part of our lives as we start to see God’s heart for all people.
A compilation series from Christian teachers, who show us what it looks like when justice overflows from following Jesus.
