Special services and events for Holy Week and Easter

All are welcome to any or all

Holy Week and Easter
On Palm Sunday (24th March), Paul Perry will be coordinating a dramatic reading of the Passion narrative at St Mary’s.

Then, on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week there will be at St Mary’s a 7pm Reflection followed by Compline. On Maundy Thursday there will be a 7pm Eucharist of the Last Supper followed by a Watch of Prayer.

On Good Friday there will be a Walk of Witness starting at the Catholic Church at 10am, and concluding with hot cross buns at the Methodist Church. Camilla Campling-Denton will be leading an all age  ‘Whistle-Stop Tour Through Lent’ at St Mary’s, 12noon-1pm. At 2pm there will be a Meditation for the Last Hour in St Mary’s, a shortened form of the traditional Three Hours’ service held in previous years. The day will conclude with a 7pm Sung Meditation, William Lloyd Webber’s 'The Saviour'.

Our first Easter Service this year will be an Easter Day Dawn Service at Easby Abbey: at 6:30am Revd Julia Reid will be leading a Service of Prayer and Praise, when Christians of all denominations will join together to proclaim the Resurrection. Easter Day services at St Mary’s will be 8am Holy Communion and 10am Parish Communion.

Look whats happening on the 1st Sunday of every month

Have you seen what we are doing on the 1st Sunday of the month? It's new and you are invited to join us as we explore a different way to 'DO' Church.

Our Morning Worship is an All Inclusive, All Age service filled with music, prayer and a short talk.

This is the perfect service if you want to dip your toe into Church but are not sure when to stand or sit down, when to say Amen or what to do when you are offered a cup of tea.

All are Welcome. Bring a friend!

This month we will be joined by the worship team from SFX School as we celebrate the Harvest Festival. It would be great to see you too.
