Holy Week Services at St. Margaret's

Maundy Thursday (April 2nd)

This is the day on which we remember Jesus’ gift of Holy Communion, and his command to love one another (‘Maundy’ comes from the Latin word ‘maundatum’ which means ‘commandment’). We will meet for Holy Communion at 7.30 p.m. The service will include an opportunity to participate in a symbolic washing of feet or hands (optional), and will conclude with the stripping of the church for Good Friday.

Good Friday (April 3rd)

Our Good Friday service will be at 10.30 a.m. It will include a children’s component, after which the children will go downstairs for their own Good Friday program. As part of this service we join together in reading the story of Jesus’ death from the Gospel of John (with different people reading the parts of the various characters); later, we bring in a wooden cross and gather around it to remember Jesus’ death and to pray for the world for which he died.

Easter Sunday (April 5th)

We will celebrate the resurrection of Jesus with services of Holy Communion at 9.00 & 10.30 a.m. on Easter Sunday.
