Holy Week Booklet

Over 2000 years later and the impact of that week lives on and on and on…

Holy Week Booklet 2020

In this booklet we invite you to walk with Jesus on his journey from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday. It is a week of drama; of action; of thought provoking events. It is the story of the week we call Holy Week and it begins with Jesus’ triumphal ride into Jerusalem and ends with his glorious resurrection on Easter Sunday. But what of the events in between? We hope these readings will help you ponder some of those events. Without Jesus’ death on the cross and his resurrection 3 days later we would not have forgiveness for our sins and the promise of eternal life.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as together we put to one side all earthly matters and walk the way He walked.

Every blessing,

Heather, Andrew and Donald

The Sixth Sunday of Lent

Hello everyone

Attached is our Lent Liturgy.  Also attached is a word from Keith Hartrick to challenge our thinking this week.

Because we won’t be able to receive our Palm Crosses and we will be singing Make Way Make Way and the other Palm Sunday hymns alongside the television, Facebook or somewhere on the web, we thought you might make your own cross.   Any material will do.  You will see from the attached sheet that I managed to use cutlery for one, towels for another and the vacuum cleaner for a third.  I think your creations will be lots better.  If you do join in take a photo and send it as an attachment if you can.

If the young people want to take part, there will be a prize for the best ones when this crisis is over – Charlotte the donkey will come and live at your house for a week.   Honestly, parents, she is easy to look after – absolutely no mess!

Blessings

Heather, Andrew and Donald

THE SIXTH SUNDAY OF LENT

How do you wear your Crown?

‘Being Church’ #3

Hi everyone

It is good to keep in touch in all the varied and wonderful ways we are creating when we can’t engage in the natural and easy way of walking and talking together and giving each other a hug.  I have never felt it more keenly than this week.  You will see from the Newsletter that both Charles Shaw and Godfrey Wilson have died.  I know what a shock this will be to many of you and you will have lots of memories of two lovely men.  Please pray for Carol and Joan at a time when all we want to do is go and give them a hug but alas we can’t do that. 

I am not sure at this point in time what sort of a funeral we will be able to have but hopefully I will be able to go to Stonefall with some of the family – we will have to wait and see.  Meanwhile it would be wonderful if you would send me your memories and any photos you have of them and I will put them together for Joan and Carol respectively in a memory book.

Following on from the challenge to make or find a cross in a new place I can tell you I have already had a picture of one made with toilet rolls (not so many that they’re stockpiling honestly)  and one with logs.  Please keep the pictures coming in.  I’ll share them with you next week.

Meanwhile, stay safe, look after yourselves

Every blessing
