On Thursday 29th March at 7.30 p.m., we will be holding our Maundy Thursday service when we will be remembering how Jesus washed the feet of his disciples before sharing a Last Supper. We will be holding a Communion service before the altar is stripped, leaving us to leave in silence as we contemplate Jesus’ suffering which was to occur on Good Friday. There will be a vigil and people are welcome to stay, sit and pray following the service.
There will be a 10am service as normal today. However, the 6:30pm Passiontide service of music and readings is cancelled because of the snow. Instead, there will be evening prayer at 6:30. Apologies for any confusion caused by a previous post.
Despite the snow, all services on 4th March are carrying on as normal.
