Holy Week and Easter Weekend Services 2015

A quick reminder of the timing of various services in the next few days.


We had two poignant services on Monday and Tuesday contemplating the reality of brokenness and suffering in the life of Jesus and also in our lives.  Tonight (Wednesday) at 6pm we will show a short dvd by Adam Hamilton on the events surrounding the last week of Jesus’ life.  There will be opportunity for discussion afterwards.

On Thursday, being Maundy Thursday, there will be two services of Holy Communion at 8.30am and at 6pm.  This will involve foot-washing.  I say this so I don’t catch you on a back footing when it comes to washing your feet!


On Good Friday there will be a service from 12pm to 3pm.  Rev Tim McGowan will lead you through Matthew’s account of the Passion in chapters 26 and 27. (I’ll be taking the Good Friday service at St Paul’s in Durban.)  If you have never been to a Good Friday service at All Souls, it really is a worth while experience and I would encourage you to carve out the time to attend.

On Easter Sunday there will be three services: (1) a Sunrise Service at 5.30am, down by the memorial garden, beneath the cross, (2) a Traditional Service at 7am and (3) a Contemporary Service at 9am.  All three services will have Holy Communion (of various forms).
