Holy Week is the week before Easter and a time of reflection. A proper Church Easter is a rollercoaster ride and we want to be ready for the joy on Easter Sunday morning. Here’s what’s happening.

Wednesday 12th April – Film: The Miracle Maker (cert U) at 2pm in Church. All are welcome, no charge.
Thursday 13th April (Maundy Thursday) – A special service remembering the last supper. There is a ceremony of washing feet which you can join in with if you’d like to as well as a vigil watch at the end.
Friday 14th April (Good Friday) – The church is open for you to drop in and out between 12 and 3pm. At 1pm there will the a stations of the cross and at 2pm a structured reflection.
Saturday 15th April (Holy Saturday) – We are allowed to start our celebration of Easter after sundown, so we have a service at 8.15pm where we will light our new Paschal candle and celebrate that Jesus is risen from the dead!
