Daily reflections during the 40 days of Lent from the Oxford Diocese via email

Who is it for and when is it happening?

Come and See takes place during Lent each year. It's a big, warm open invitation to everyone, for everyone for an adventure in faith and trust. Its something for the local church and the whole community... including children and young people, families and schools. It's completely free and all are welcome. This year Come and See starts on Ash Wednesday, 22 February 2023.

What does it involve?

We send you a short email each day, Monday to Saturday. And on Sundays during Lent you receive a short video from Bishop Steven exploring the theme for Come and See that year in a bit more detail. Each email begins with a short passage of text from the Bible. If you've never opened a Bible before, please don't worry, just go with the flow as you settle in to the journey.

What about children and families?

Every person has a part to play in sharing Gods love for the world through their actions. That's why we have a separate weekly email for children and families, and separate materials for teachers, and children, youth and family leaders too. Children and schools materials include films from our school chaplains, and access to some of the contemplative practices from our Space Makers toolkit.
