Holy Week

Experience shows that Easter is even more joyful if we have taken time to journey with Jesus through the events of Holy Week and reflect on each step of his journey.

On this page you will find all that you need to help you journey with Jesus through Holy Week. We will be adding new reflections each day and there will be a service with reflections on Good Friday too.

Monday-Thursday and Saturday: we would normally have met in church at 8pm for these reflection. Good Friday: the shorter service and talk would have been in Bourne End at 9.30 with the three hours at the cross taking place in Sunnyside 12noon-3pm. You may wish to spend those times taking part in your home but do use the materials any time.

Materials will appear below as the week goes on:

It’s Friday…but Sunday’s a Coming…a powerful film about the events of Easter weekend. Worth a watch!
