2020 Holy Week and Easter slider

On Maundy Thursday (7.30pm), there is a ‘liturgy’ for celebrating an Agape meal at home yourselves.  It works even for one person.  It is not Communion, but it will unite us. The Agape Meal material is here. If you would like to join in the keeping of the Gospel of the Watch after supper on Maundy Thursday (9pm), then you will find the readings here.

Good Friday resources will be here. (11am or 5pm).  It takes the form of Stations of the Cross, music and words.

On Easter Eve (8pm) you can listen to the blessing of the Pascal Candle, hear the Easter Drama and renew your Baptismal vows here. If you listen to that you can break your Lenten Fast afterwards…. (Cheers!)

Easter Day (10am) is here.

Remember that the Passion play, including the Easter Sections is here. If you would like to listen to the Easter Drama sections, listen from scene 13.

With the permission of the BRF the Holy Week chapters of ‘At Home in Lent’ can be read and or listened to.  You’ll find them here. I would also commend to you the following website:

Mo’s Easter Sermon is here.

On Easter Day the Archbishop of Canterbury will be celebrating Easter from his kitchen. This is surely something not to miss. Rest assured, we will have communion in the Vicarage on Easter Day and I intend to record and upload that. But at 9am on Radio 4 and on the Church of England Website, you can watch, listen and join in – See:

The service will be available:

BBC Radio 4 and the Church of England Facebook page will broadcast the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Easter Day service, with the Bishop of Dover

The Archbishop of Canterbury will publish a reflection on Facebook and his website.
