Palm Sunday we gather in the Parish Hall for a festive procession into the church. We hear the story of Jesus’ Passion and celebrate Eucharist. 8am and 10am, April 5

Holy Wednesday we celebrate our regular midweek Bible Study and Eucharist with lessons appointed for Holy Wednesday. This is an informal service around a table in the Parsish Hall, with conversation about the lessons and sharing of the Bread and Wine around the table. 11am, April 8

Maundy Thursday we experience Jesus’ servanthood in the washing of his disciple’s feet and commemorate the institution of the very first Eucharist. As this service closes, we strip the church of its finery and prepare to commemorate Jesus’ death on Good Friday. 7pm, April 9.

Good Friday we explore the part human beings played in the death of Jesus. We explore the paradox of Jesus’ death and what this means for our lives. This service includes the veneration of the Cross and Communion from reserve Sacrament. 1pm and 7pm, April 10.

On Easter Sunday we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord. At both services, we light our candles from the new fire. At 10am, we will celebrate Holy Baptism, children are encouraged to flower the Easter Cross and participate in an interactive sermon. 8am and 10am, April 12

An Easter Egg hunt for kids follows the 10am service.
