Here you will find details of our Easter Services from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday
Palm Sunday, 25th March
Parish Communion at 10.30am
On Palm Sunday we celebrate the triumphal entry of Jesus Christ into Jerusalem, the week before his death and resurrection. For us, Palm Sunday, often referred to as "Passion Sunday," marks the beginning of Holy Week, which concludes on Easter Sunday.
Maundy Thursday, 29th March
St Paul's Methodist church join us for our Maundy Thursday service at 7.30pm
Maundy Thursday, also known as Holy Thursday, occurs during Holy Week and falls on the Thursday before Good Friday. It commemorates Jesus Christ’s last supper and the initiation of the Eucharist, which is observed in many Christian churches.
Good Friday, 30th March
Walk of Witness, Meet at St Patrick's Church, Bolton Brow, as we walk to St. Paul's Tower Hill at 10.00am for 10.30
Good Friday commemorates the crucifixion of Jesus Christ following his time in the desert and his triumphal re-entrance into Jerusalem. This is a very important event in many Christian churches and is seen by some as the foundation of the Religion. Many churches hold special services on Good Friday to remind their congregations about Christ's suffering.
Hallelujah, He is risen
Easter Sunday, 1st April
Parish Communion, in Church at 10.30am
Easter Sunday marks Jesus' resurrection.
After Jesus was crucified on the Friday (now known as Good Friday), his body was taken down from the cross, and buried in a cave tomb. The tomb was guarded by Roman Soldiers and an enormous stone was put over the entrance, so that no-one could steal the body.
On the Sunday, Mary Magdalene, followed later by some of Jesus' disciples visited the tomb and found that the stone had been moved, and that Jesus' body had gone.
Jesus himself was seen that day by Mary and the disciples, and for forty days afterwards by many people. His followers realised that God had raised Jesus from the dead. Christians call this the Resurrection.
