Celebrate Easter with us, starting with Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, on February 18th at 7.30. This traditional service of 'Imposition of Ashes' is followed by a Bible study course every Wednesday during Lent. The course is entitled "Praise Him", and will be led by Rev. Graham Earney, meeting in the extension at 7.30.
Easter services begin with a supper on Maundy Thursday, including communion and 'stripping the altar', when the usual cloths covering the communion table are ceremonially removed in recognition of our sorrow.
There is a meditation on Good Friday, before our major celebration on Easter Sunday. See the Calendar pages for details of the services.
