12:00Meditations on the CrossA short service of reflections and plainsong to help us contemplate the Passion of Christ by stopping and praying about his journey to the cross at the key points on the way. It grew out of the practice of walking the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary on the day of his crucifixion.
Saturday 20th April 2019 19:30The Watch: Easter VigilOn this most holy night we begin the service outside in darkness. We will kindle a new fire, mark the new Easter candle and light it. That light is brought into the church to celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ from the dead. Having completed our observance of lent, we renew the promises made at our baptism by affirming our allegiance to Christ.
