What is lent?


Lent is the period of six weeks 40 days (not including Sundays) leading up to Easter. At OLCC we prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, moderation and spiritual discipline

This year Lent starts on Wednesday 26 February and ends on Saturday 11 April 2020.



Everybody is encouraged to abstain from eating all day and to break their fast with ONE meal each day i.e pick a meal that you will be having daily and stay with the cycle. We suggest that this not be the evening meal.

We also encourage people:

  • Spend a lot of time in Praying in the Spirit
  • Drink a lot of water - keep the plumbing going.
  • Take time off work - invest in your future by seeking God.

Communion is to be served daily with your family while at home and at each of the meetings on site.
