Lent and Easter
The 40 days before Easter are called "Lent". An opportunity to give time to God and reflection. Not just to give up something.
This year there is an opportunity to take part in the 2021 Lent Reflection series on Zoom.

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: this year St Mary's will be open on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Good Friday, 12.30-3.30 pm.
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 . This year you can participate in one of the many online services and in the Walk of Witness.
