Ministry

We are delighted that Rev’d Chris Ford has accepted a call to become the minster of our church. Chris will begin his ministry with us in September this year, with his induction being planned for the afternoon of Sunday 3rd September.

Easter services and activities

Passiontide and Easter were celebrated with a number of special services and activities at church.

Holy Week began with Sunday worship on Palm Sunday which incorporated a series of short dramatised scenes given by the Goldsmith Players (our church drama group) linked with bible readings.

On Thursday evening, we had a Tenebrae service and, on Good Friday, we had a Service of the Nails at 12 noon and a presentation by the church choir in the evening. This was a service of music for passiontide and readings linking Old Testament prophesies with passages from the New Testament which record their fulfillment.

Today we had a joyous all-age communion service after a lovely Easter breakfast.

Thank you to everyone who prepared, organised, led and contributed to these services and events.
