The MAUNDY THURSDAY service on Thursday 13th April at 7.30pm will be a Tenebrae service, with communion. The word 'tenebrae' means shadows. During the service we first commemorate the Last Supper, share bread and wine, and then, as we hear the story of how events unfolded that night 2000 years ago, we extinguish candles to symbolise the advancing darkness.
Our Good Friday morning service is at 10am, whilst on Easter Sunday, there are two services. There is early morning communion at 8.30am and we dress the Easter cross with flowers at the 10.30am service. The SOS full Easter Sunday breakfast will be served in the hall at 9am for those who have pre-booked. If you can join us for any of our events this Easter, you will be very welcome. If we don't see you however, we hope you enjoy a very happy Easter weekend.
