MAUNDY THURSDAY

18th March

 

Join us as we gather in our own upper room in the Community Centre to share a simple meal together, finishing with an act of Holy Communion. 

We then move to the church nave to gather by the altar of repose and, as Christ commanded, 'keep watch' in a prayer vigil until Midnight (feel free to stay for as little or as long as you like, or to come and go at any point).

Join us for this powerful start to the Triduum  - the three days of prayer and reflection leading up to Easter Day.
