The celebration of Easter 2017 was a moving occasion. It began with the triumphant procession of Palm Sunday, through the events of Holy Week, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday before reaching the joyful ‘Alleluias’ of Easter Day.
The Palm Sunday Gospel was accompanied by the distribution of Palm Crosses and the reading of the Passion Narrative. During the Week there was a series of Evening Meditations and Maundy Thursday observed the first Lord’s Supper and the ‘New Commandment’ to love one another. Good Friday was a time of Reflection with special Services and activities.
The joy of Easter Day was expressed in Baptism and Egg Hunts with the Benefice Choir leading one of the Services and singing the anthems:- “See what a morning” by Townend/Getty and “He liveth unto God” by Caleb Simper. During Communion they sang “Were you there?” and “Led like a lamb”
