Prepare for Easter: Join a virtual interactive community for Lent reflecting on the theme of ‘God in our Wilderness’
The Churches of All Hallows by the Tower, St Botolph’s Aldgate and St Botolph’s Bishopsgate and the Tower of London are coming together to form a virtual reflective community for Lent. Through a blog, which can be found at, (click link below) daily reflections from a wide range of contributors, prayers, photographs and videos will provide us with a starting point for our individual prayer, reflection and allow us to share our own thoughts and images. Join this online community to share this Lenten journey – on your smartphone or iPad while commuting, during your lunch break or comfortably at home at the end of the day. You can also join us on Twitter at @CityReflect – this will remind you when new material is being uploaded to the blog. We wish you a holy, reflective and connected Lent.
