This week is holy week. It’s the time we remember all that happened in the last week of Jesus’ life. We’ve got special services on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday! Come and remember with us and learn more about the Easter Story.

Maundy Thursday 18th April 2019
Our services start with a special service in three parts on Maundy Thursday. The first part is a meal at 5.30pm in the Community Hall. This is suitable for the whole family and will be remembering the Last Supper and Jesus washing the disciples feet. At 6.30pm we’ll be moving into Church for a Communion service. If you have children, you might want to take them home at this point. After Communion we’ll be taking part in a ‘watch’. This remembers how Jesus asked his Disciples to ‘watch and pray’. Our watch will run from the end of the communion service until 9pm, but don’t worry if you can’t stay for the whole time.

Good Friday Friday 19th April 2019
The church will be open for silent prayer from 12noon. At 1pm, we will follow the way of the cross (usually about 40 minutes) and at 2pm the Good Friday liturgy will take us through to 3pm. Please come for as much or as little of this as you would like.

Holy Saturday 20th April 2019
As soon as the sun has set, at 8.30pm, we’ll be starting our Easter celebrations. Our Easter Vigil service involves the lighting of a fire and the new Paschal candle. We will enter the church in darkness and hear afresh the story of salvation from the Bible. We will the celebrate Easter as we sing together and receive our first communion of Easter.

Easter Day, Sunday 21st April 2019
Easter continues with two celebration services on Sunday morning at 9.30am and 11.15am. Both services will involve celebration and chocolate! Bring a friend and worship with us.
