Welcome to A Journey to Easter 

This Lenten calendar has been created by the Anglican Diocese of Auckland to help us focus and reflect on the journey of Jesus Christ to the events of Easter, and what these mean for us today.

It was originally created in 2016 by Karen Spoelstra (Diocesan Youth Facilitator) and The Rev’d Sarah Park (former Diocesan Ministry Educator).

Here you will find reflections, songs, poems, readings and images that focus on finding God in everyday life, especially in times of temptation or suffering. Each week takes an excerpt from Ash Wednesday’s Gospel reading and explores how that might be expressed in daily life.

Most of the photos are recognisably ‘Kiwi’. Some audio content is from former and current diocesan staff. The calendar runs until Easter Day and overlaps with A Resurrection Journey in Holy Week.

You may want to follow A Journey to Easter via this website. For easy access, we invite you to copy the URL and pin it to your smartphone’s home screen. Some reflections will also be posted on the Anglican Diocese of Auckland’s Facebook page.

Whatever way you wish to use A Journey to Easter, we hope that it deepens your faith and strengthens your relationship with Jesus.

Let’s journey together towards Easter!
