Holy Week Services

“Jesus grew up to be a man and died on the cross.
This is sad, but it is also wonderful.”  – Jerome Berryman.

We invite you to journey through Holy Week, through the sadness and into the joy.

Palm Sunday – Sunday, April 14 at 11am.
This All-Ages worship service centres around a story called “These Stones will Shout.” We sing. We pray. We remind ourselves that, no matter what, still we believe in Love’s Way.

Maundy Thursday – Thursday, April 18 at 7pm.
We don’t often worship in the sanctuary at night. And it is beautiful in the evening, the sanctuary enclosed in darkness and lit with the soft light of candles.

The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another

We remember the foot-washing and we recall Jesus’ promise that whenever we take bread and share it, he will be there. This is a big promise. It is not just back then, it’s for us today!

Good Friday – Friday. April 15 at 1pm.
We welcome the Rev. Andy O’Neill and the folk at St. Paul’s United Church to our Good Friday worship. The service is at 1pm.

This is always a sombre service as we gather beneath the cross. Yet, it is also a gently uplifting time, because no matter what, we still believe in Love’s Way. We want to remember even if it is sad.

Easter Sunday – Sunday, April 21 at 11am.
The colours change. From the purple of Lent we enter into the colour of pure celebration. Joy is here. We celebrate with bread and wine and know that Jesus is with us in a new way.

And you can’t keep Easter in just one Sunday. It goes on for six weeks, all the way to Pentecost.

We welcome you.
