Holy Week - Sunday 25th March to Sunday 1st April
Christians around the world keep the week between Palm Sunday and Easter Day as special. It is an opportunity to spend time reflecting on the last week of Jesus’ life and preparing ourselves for the great celebration of Easter.
As we follow Jesus through the final week of his life, the services ask us to reflect on the challenges we face in our own lives and how we respond to them. They remind us that we do not travel through life alone but In the company of o God who loves us.
