Holy Week Services

Holy Week Service Times and Links

This week we invite you to join with us to remember the various events of the week in Jesus’ life that we call Holy Week. We travel from the triumphant entry into Jerusalem celebrated this Sunday (Palm Sunday) through his passion, betrayal and crucifixion, to the celebration of his resurrection on Easter Sunday.

Due to the restrictions in place around gatherings that now affect the way we can record and present our services, we will be using 3 different methods to bring you our services. The times, links and any instructions for these services are as follows:

PALM SUNDAY  (5 April) 9am

 (Have your Palm branches ready at home to join the celebration)

MAUNDY THURSDAY (9 April) 6.30pm

Go to the link and click the blue ‘Join call’ button.  If you have a video camera you can switch it on so that we will all see each other. But you can simply leave it off and watch/listen. This reflective service will focus on the events of Christ’s final supper with his disciples.

GOOD FRIDAY (10 April) 8am

You will be encouraged to join in at times during the service. If you are able, gather the few things listed below before the service. While not essential, having these items will allow you at home to immerse yourself in the story of Christ’s Passion.

  • a bowl with some coins in it
  • a blank sheet of white paper
  • a Bible
  • a branch of a plant with some thorns
  • a nail
  • a small amount of vinegar – enough to be able to smell it
  • bread and some juice or wine
  • a stone
