Gather with us this Holy Week & Easter

Welcome to our website. We’d like to thank you for popping by and take this opportunity to invite you to join us at one of our public worship services in the coming days. They are open to all and all are welcome.
Sunday worship is a key expression of our love for God and we believe that when we gather together, Jesus is with us. We hope that you too might be able to join us this coming weekend for one of our services.

Holy Week
The week before Easter is known as Holy Week and Christians take time to prepare for Easter by remembering the sacrifice of Jesus, when he died on the cross for our sins. This Holy Week, why not join us for any or all of the following services/events:
Maundy Thursday 28th March, St Peter’s Church, 7pm. Holy Communion with (optional) foot washing. Join us at 7pm for this special service during which congregation members will have the opportunity, only if they want to, to have their feet washed in remembrance of Jesus washing the feet of his disciples.
Good Friday 29th March. There will be our usual Friday Coffee Morning at Christ Church beginning at 10am with the added attraction of Hot Cross Buns. Do join us if you can. Also at 10am, there will be a family service at St Peter’s Church when we remember the crucifixion of Jesus and think about its significance for us. At midday, there will be an open-air gathering near the memorial at the top of Castle Hill led by Pastor Anthony from Mountsorrel Baptist Church and open to all. At 2pm, back at St Peter’s Church, there will be a one-hour service of readings, prayer and silence led by Revd Colin.

Easter Day
This coming Sunday 31st March is Easter Day and is one of the most joy-filled days in the Christian year. We would like to extend a very warm welcome to you to join us for one of our Easter services.

Christ Church, 11am
We will be celebrating with a service of Holy Communion suitable for all the family. If you’ve not been to Church before, or if it’s been a while, why not join us on Easter morning. You would be most welcome. No need to book – just turn up.

St Peter’s Church, 9.30am
We will celebrate Easter with a traditional service of Holy Communion using words from the Book of Common Prayer. These prayers have guided Christians in England, and elsewhere for many generations and we hope you will come and join us.
