That’s what Easter is all about; good news! The power of good news is, in part at least, found in comparison to what we think of as normal. If you said to me 18 months ago that we will be meeting together in person for an Easter Sunday service I would have have thought ‘yeah, so what’. But, now after the past 12 months of in and out of Lockdown I am very pleased to say that from Easter Sunday we are gathering in person and online for our Sunday worship services, which is good news indeed!
The schedule is laid out below for Holy Week (week commencing 28th March) and Easter Sunday (4th April).
Palm Sunday 28th March 10am - An online only service with Adrian Wallace leading and Revd Richard preaching. Palm Crosses available to collect at The Rectory, Main Street.
