Unfortunately due to lockdown, this will not be possible this year – in fact, last year’s pancakes, which accompanied a Mardi Gras arts festival, was one of our last events before the Covid crisis struck.

If you would like to make your own pancakes this year, here is the original recipe (for thin pancakes use plain flour and double the milk)

Shrove Tuesday is the day before Lent, the period of 40 days before Easter that begins on Ash Wednesday. All are welcome to join our Ash Wednesday service of prayer at 1pm —see our THIS WEEK section for joining details, or contact the chaplains for more information.
