Holy Week

This time last year we were in the first lockdown and I doubt any of us through we would be celebrating Easter at home for a second year. Last year many of us made Easter Gardens and decorated crosses to put in our windows – which you can see from the page link above.

This year I think we are all a bit more weary but thank you to those of you who sent some in and I have added the new ones at the top of the page.

For this week here are some resources to help us to reflect on the events of Holy Week. First a short reflection I have put together based on “Peter: A two-part Easter spoken word” by Dai Woolridge and the Bible society:

For Maundy Thursday – The Story of the Last Supper as told by Rev Phil Summers.

And for Good Friday: Peter denies knowing Jesus

Worship at Home for Sunday 28th March 2021

Today is Palm Sunday – the last Sunday in Lent and the Sunday on which we both mark the Passion of our Lord Jesus and celebrate his triumphal entry onto Jerusalem. Today then is the final instalment in our worship series on ‘Worship in the Wilderness’ with the focus on “A Surprising Journey”.

We also have our service for the Gloucestershire Circuit led by Rev Phil Summers.

A Little Appeal:

As you are probably aware, our churches have been closed for most of the last year because of the Corona Virus restrictions. It is now a whole year since we were last able to hold a service with the whole congregation together. One result of this is that we have faced a reduction in income from both lettings and giving. We still have bills to pay though and our reserves are rapidly dwindling. If you are enjoying worshipping with us and feel that you could make a donation to help us out, please the click the donate button at the top of the page or contact me to donate in other ways. Many thanks.
