Family Service in April is on Palm Sunday on 5th April, followed as usual by Holy Communion.

During Holy Week, we have three additional services at St Mary’s: 

* a special Holy Communion at 8pm on Maundy Thursday to commemorate the Last Supper

* ‘The Final Hour’ on Good Friday at 2pm, an opportunity through words and music to reflect on the great love which God has shown to us

* on Easter Eve (Sat) we have ‘The Coming of the Light’, an Easter Vigil at 8pm.

In addition, the choir will be performing Pergolesi’s ‘Stabat Mater’ on Good Friday in St Mary’s at 7pm. All are welcome, no tickets are required; there will be a retiring collection

All donations throughout Easter will be given to the ‘Children on the Edge. This charity works to help some of the most vulnerable children worldwide; many are neglected or even persecuted by their own governments, ignored by international media and missed by large overseas aid agencies. These children are being robbed of their childhood.  They are children on the edge of society.
