Holy Week and Easter
We remember and celebrate the transforming love of God and his action through Jesus Christ's death on the cross, mending our broken relationship with him. Many services use the image of light breaking through darkness.

Holy Week is the week before Easter starting with Palm Sunday which marks Christ's ride into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. In previous years, St Mary's has had an Easter Walkway the length of the church and is likely to do so again.
Many events take place on Maundy Thursday, the day of the "Last Supper", when Christ shared bread and wine with his disciples.
On Good Friday we commemorate Christ's death on the cross .
Easter Sunday celebrates his resurrection. Please go to our coronavirus page
