All are Welcome to our Easter Celebrations

All are Welcome to our Easter Celebrations

Dear friends,


Writing about Easter this Good Friday, I am tempted to use the ‘A word’ – but we must keep that in reserve until our celebrations begin!


As mentioned in my event post on 23rd March (detailing our Holy Week and Easter programme), our first Easter celebration will be at 8pm on Easter Eve when we will gather for the Service of Light. This is when we will bring in the new Easter Candle to the dark church – filling it with Easter light!

Do join us in person, online or by dialling-in ( https://us02web.zoom.us/j/87688110772?pwd=TkZNdGVnMWdyVng1VWUyci9OWnZUZz09  or telephone 0131 460 1196 / Meeting ID: 876 8811 0772 / Passcode: 988447 ).


Our services on Easter Day will be 8am BCP Holy Communion, and 10am Parish Communion – when our preacher will be Bishop John.


Please join the 8am service in person (to allow physical distancing we will meet in the nave of the church); this service will not be accessible online or by dial-in.


Please join the 10am service in person, online, or by dialling in.

If you attend in person please observe the precautions required to maintain St Mary’s as a Covid-secure environment for all, which will be advised to you as you enter. These include:

  • wearing a face covering, sanitizing your hands, maintaining appropriate physical distancing, and keeping ‘mingling’ to a minimum.

To join online the Zoom and YouTube links are shown at the foot of this message. The telephone number is shown alongside the Zoom video link if you would rather dial in.

Upon joining through Zoom you will be admitted from a ‘waiting room’; to help us admit you as quickly as possible please could you:

  • join reasonably early and ensure your ‘screen name’ is easily identifiable as you!


For the 10am service a full and shortened version of the service sheet is attached, the latter being more easily printable if you wish, along with the hymns and readings. The final attachment is this week’s Pew Sheet.
