Lent / Holy Week 2023
Wesley Methodist Church

The Season of Lent

The Lent season stretches over 40 days from Ash Wednesday to Holy Saturday, the day before Easter. It excludes the six Sundays that fall in this period as these are generally regarded as weekly commemoration and celebration of the first Easter – the Resurrection of the Lord.

In contrast, Lent is a time of repentance, fasting and preparation for the coming of Easter. This year, Lent starts on 22 February 2023 (Ash Wednesday) and ends on 8 April 2023 (Holy Saturday). Easter Sunday falls on 9 April 2023.

Ash Wednesday marks the start of Lent. Come and be blessed as we posture our hearts right in repentance at the start of this season.

How often do we pause from our daily schedules and allow God to inspect our hearts, with no area hidden? 

As we approach Holy Week, let us gather as a faith community to take stock of our thoughts, inclinations, speech, and actions, through 

  • silent reflection
  • confessional prayers and 
  • songs

as we begin each day with a sombre reflection of our lives, and hopefully an eventual awakening and quickening of our spirits.


Journey To The Cross

Journey to the Cross is a self-guided spiritual exercise where you will walk through four prayer stations intended to take you on the path that Jesus walked in the final few days of His life on earth.

It is a journey of encountering our Lord from the agony at Gethsemane, the betrayal by Judas, the denial by Peter, the trial and suffering, to His final breath on the cross.

During the journey, we will reflect and respond to what our Lord had done, recommit to be His faithful disciples, and then, individually and as a family, go forth to proclaim the amazing resurrection hope of Easter through word and deed.

Join us on these dates | On-site

  • 3 April 2023 (Holy Monday), 1pm to 7pm
  • 4 April 2023 (Holy Tuesday), 9am to 7pm
  • 5 April 2023 (Holy Wednesday), 9am to 7pm*
  • 6 April 2023 (Maundy Thursday), 9am to 3pm

*Note: Wednesday 5 April, 9.00am to 12 noon, will be specially set aside for seniors and those who are less mobile. To ensure safety, the stations will be brighter then. There will also be GYM volunteers present to guide and help the participants along.

No Registration Required

Just walk in during the above opening hours. To ensure a safe and conducive space for prayer and meditation, however, we seek your understanding if you have to wait for your turn to enter a particular station when it gets crowded, especially during the peak hours. Together let us make this a smooth and reflective journey for all.
