Holy Week

This year we will once again slow down to walk with Jesus in real-time through our Holy Week services. See below for how to join our church as we worship together with Jesus in his Passion. If you plan to attend one of our services, make sure to check out our indoor and outdoor service procedures.

Palm Sunday Holy Communion | 9.00a and 11.00a

Holy Week begins with a remembrance of Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem, and a reading of the Passion Gospel in which the whole story of Holy week is anticipated. Join us for worship at 9.00a (register to come in person or stream online), or outdoors at 11.00a (weather permitting). Missal, printable bulletin, livestream, and music links are here.

Be sure to bring your Fill-a-Bowl contributions for Kinyago Dandora School in Kenya.

Passover Supper

The Passover Supper is a family meal. Please consider using the liturgy one night during Holy Week to remember God’s saving work for the people of Israel in the Exodus story — the same story that Jesus called to mind when he instituted the Last Supper. Background, instructions, and a PDF bulletin for the liturgy are here.

Maundy Thursday Service | 7.00p

We will gather to share foot washing and a communion service where we “commemorate the Lord’s example of servant ministry, the institution of the Eucharist, the agony in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the betrayal leading to the crucifixion.” (BCP 2019, 559).

The service will be outdoors, and the procedure for the foot washing will be family-friendly and COVID-safe. There is no registration required for attending in person. Missal, printable bulletin, livestream, and music links are here.

After the service there will be an opportunity to observe an hour-long prayer watch inside the nave, as the altar is stripped and the space is prepared for Good Friday.
