Holy Week & Easter
The Easter message is the most amazing, life-changing, purpose-yielding and reassuring news which the world could ever hope to receive. Join with Emmanuel in celebrating the irrefutable truth of this world-transforming week as we rejoice in Jesus’ victory over death and his offer of life beyond the grave.
Palm Sunday 25th March, 10.30am
Palm Sunday Communion Service
A simple yet deeply meaningful time together with Palm Crosses being given out during the service, as we remember Jesus’ journey into Jerusalem shortly before he was crucified. Children will meet in their groups part-way through the service.
Wednesday 28th March, 10.30am
A service with final Lent themes before the four days in Jerusalem which changed the eternal destiny of the world!
Maundy Thursday 29th March, 6.30pm
Sight, sound, taste and participation all come together in a wonderful opportunity to see the origins of our Communion service through a relaxed meal together, complete with all the teaching which the Jewish Passover menu of food so richly provides. A full roast meal and a great time of celebration together. Visitors warmly welcomed!
Good Friday 30th March, 10.30am
Family at the Cross (more for children)
An opportunity for families to spend half an hour together to mark the day on which Jesus was crucified and died, and take on board what it means for us today. Followed by Hot Cross Buns & clotted cream at the back of the church building.
Three Hours at the Cross (more for grownups)
A time of scripture, meditation, prayer and silent reflection to think about what it meant for Jesus to die on the cross and what our response to his love should be (feel free to come and go at any time).
Easter Day 1st April, 10.30am
Easter Family Communion
A celebration-packed Easter service for all ages! A time to learn, have fun, praise God, take part in ‘The Great Easter Egg Give-Away’, pray and to realise what an amazing thing Jesus has done for us through the cross and resurrection!
Easter Scripture, Prayer and Praise
‘Just what it says on the tin!’ Time together to adore and praise the work of our Saviour in an informal setting of hymns and songs—modern and traditional.
