On Sunday at 10.30am we are having an “all age” service! Bring along your decorated eggs and stay after the service for a barbeque. There will be lots of activities for kids on offer – and plenty for the young at heart too! We’d love you to join us as we celebrate Easter together.
Tonight’s service will focus on Matthew 27:57-66.
Come and join us as we continue our journey through Holy Week.
Maundy Thursday is observed during Holy Week on the Thursday before Easter – i.e. today! Some people refer to it as “Holy Thursday” or “Great Thursday” but it is a time when we remember when Jesus shared the Passover meal with his disciples on the night before he was crucified. Before the Passover meal, Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. By performing this lowly act of service, the Bible says in John 13:1 that Jesus “showed them the full extent of his love.”
The word “maundy” is derived from the Latin word mandatum, meaning “commandment.” Maundy refers to the commands Jesus gave his disciples at the Last Supper: to love with humility by serving one another and to remember his sacrifice.
Tonight at our service we will be serving Communion and we will look at Matthew 26: 36-46 – “The Agony in the Garden”. You would be very welcome to join us at 7.00 pm in the Church.
