Holy Week & Easter Services

Holy Week symbols

Holy Week marks the points of the Drama of Jesus in Jerusalem apparently culminating in the Cross, but fulfilled in the discovery of the empty tomb on Easter Morning. Do join us for some or all of this journey if you can.

In addition to the main services listed below, there is the usual weekday service of Morning Prayer and Eucharist at 7.30 am on Monday to Wednesday only during this week. These services are preceded by silent prayer from 7.00am. You are welcome to join us at any of these services.
