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.

Easter 2016

We had a wonderful service on Easter Day.

After some of us shared Easter Breakfast together, our interim moderator led a joyful service of worship and Holy Communion and we also had the pleasure of receiving two new members of the church by profession of faith.

Thank you to David for preparing and leading our service and to the flower arranging team which made the church look so attractive or the occasion.

There are plenty of other thanks due to those who made this Holy Week so special again this year:

  • to Mark for leading our Tenebrae Service and the Service of the Nails
  • to Phil and the choir for the Passiontide music and reflections on Good Friday evening
  • to the Isobelle and the flower arranging team for decorating the church so beautifully for Easter Day
  • to Rosemary and Bill for making the front garden look so attractive for Easter
  • and to Liz, Mark and everyone else who organised the Easter Breakfast

Thank you to you all.

Palm Sunday 2016

On Palm Sunday, worship at our morning service was led by the Goldsmith Players, our drama group. The service was a presentation of drama, hymns and incidental music shaped around extracts from the one-act play “No Name in the Street” by Edmund Murch. It concluded with a reflection by our member, Mark Hodgson, who is a nationally accredited lay preacher.

We are grateful to the Goldsmith Players for such a well-prepared and acted presentation and for providing a thoughtful beginning to Holy Week this year.
