BRADFORD Cathedral is preparing for the season of Lent with services, discussion groups and an exhibition.

The season of Lent begins on Ash Wednesday – February 22 – and Bradford Cathedral will mark this with a Choral Eucharist with the Imposition of Ashes at 7pm, in addition to the two regular services at 8.15am and 10.15am. All are welcome at these services.

As well as these services, there will also be discussion groups throughout the month and a special exhibition.

The Rev Pete Gunstone, Acting Precentor, said: “We hope you can join us for our reflective worship at the start of Lent.”

An exhibition - The Deposition of Christ by Simon Rice – will be showcased in Bradford Cathedral until April 7.

Alongside the artwork will be storyboards showcasing the creation of the piece.

Mr Rice said: “The Deposition of Christ is a moment in the gospel accounts when Jesus was taken down from the cross to be laid in the tomb.”

This exhibition will be viewable during the cathedral’s regular opening hours of Monday – Saturday 10am to 4pm, and service times.

The piece will also be used as part of the Cathedral’s Good Friday ‘Preaching the Cross’ event.
