Holy Week & Easter

'Let us go with him in faith and love, so that, united with him in his sufferings, we may share his risen life'

We warmly welcome you to worship with us in Holy Week, the heart of the Christian year and the Christian life.  There are many opportunities for worship and prayer this week to help us all enter into the mystery of the Lord's death and Resurrection and to journey with him to newness of life.
