HOLY WEEK AND EASTER SERVICES
Although subject to change due to Government restrictions and stability in the R number, we are delighted to be cautiously planning to re-open the church for Easter. There will be a combination of online services and services in the church. See the link above to access Zoom services. This is what we have planned.
Monday 29th March, 9pm Compline via Zoom.
Tuesday 30th March, 9pm Compline via Zoom.
Wednesday 31st March, 9pm Compline via Zoom.
Thursday 1st April, 7,30pm Maundy Thursday Lord's Supper service in church, followed by the stripping of the church: Each Maundy Thursday, the priests carefully and lovingly remove the candelabra, cross, vessels, fine linens and paraments from the altar. They strip the altar to bare wood. When everything is removed, what is left is nude and vulnerable, not as imposing as one might expect. It seems almost a shame to see the altar that way, and so when the priests are finished undressing it, someone turns out the lights, and the congregation files out in silence.
Friday 2nd April, 2-3pm, Good Friday Reflections Around the Cross. Live streamed service on our YouTube channel. Click HERE to view.
Sunday 4th April, 9.30am Church at Home Easter Sunday Service via Zoom.
