As we enter the Easter period, we continue our celebration of the risen Lord – and today, St Mark’s lead and St Thomas bring the sermon, prayers and music.
We’ve reached the end of Lent and from the lows of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, we’ve reached Easter day. For our 10am service, St Thomas lead and St Mark’s bring the music, prayers and sermon.
Saturday 3rd April is Easter Eve, and in a service from darkness to light, St Mark’s and St Thomas lead a vigil service – passing from the pain of Jesus death on Good Friday and looking forward to the glorious return on Easter Sunday.
Sunday the 28th March is Palm Sunday and brings us into the last week of Lent – as we come into Holy Week and the journey to the cross at Easter. For our 10am service we’re proud to present our dramatized Passion reading, brought by members of both St Mark’s and St Thomas churches.
Sunday the 21st March is the fifth Sunday of Lent and is also known as Passion Sunday. For our 10am service it’s St Thomas who are leading as today Peter is …going for a walk?
Sunday the 14th March is the fourth Sunday of Lent but it’s also Mothering Sunday – we hope you’re going to treat your mum to something special! For our 10am service it’s St Mark’s leading as today we focus on cathedrals (and Mums!)
Sunday the 7th March is the third Sunday of Lent and for our 10am service it’s St Thomas taking a lead as today we focus on creativity in prayer with St Mark’s throwing out a few ideas!
Sunday the 28th February is the Second Sunday of Lent and for our 10am service it’s Paul and Eve – BCM Worship and Creation Care – who are taking the lead with a focus on fair trade. How we shop makes a difference – a cheap deal for us can mean continued poverty for others and detrimental climate change for us all!
Sunday the 21st February is the First Sunday of Lent and for our 10am service it’s St Thomas who are taking the lead with a focus on fasting …and over to St Mark’s to talk about food in prayers! Today George Kidner, taking part in the Bishops Permission to Preach, brings the sermon.
Wednesday 17th February is Ash Wednesday and St Mark’s and St Thomas churches come together for a 6pm service of ashing. Ash Wednesday focuses the Christian’s heart on repentance and prayer, through personal and communal confession.
