Special services in Lent and Holy Week

Sunday 2nd April: Palm Sunday. Instead of Family Communion there will be Family Praise at 9.30 and Parish Communion at 10.30.  There will be Palm processions and a reading of the Passion gospel at both services.

Sunday 9th April: Easter Sunday.  Family Communion at 10.00am will be followed by refreshments and an Easter egg hunt.

Between these Sundays is Holy Week. There will be two special services:

Thursday 6th April (Maundy Thursday) at 8.00pm: a service of Holy Communion at which we remember the Last Supper and Jesus washing his disciples’ feet.

Friday 7th April (Good Friday) at 10.00am: United Walk of Witness, starting in St Lawrence Church Yard.  With our friends from Bovingdon Baptist Church we will process up the High Street in silence behind a cross, as we remember Jesus’ journey to his place of execution. Pausing outside the Library for a hymn and a reading we will finish with a short service in the Baptist Church.  Coffee and hot cross buns will be served afterwards.
