NEWS: Holy Week and Easter at St Mary’s

The final of week of Lent is here. We are marking the days of Holy Week in many ways at St Mary’s. There is music and quiet, activity and reflection, symbol and liturgy. There is even a chance to explore outside at the children’s service on Good Friday morning (dress for all weathers!). We will also post a day-by-day timeline through the week, travelling with the disciples as they accompany Jesus from palm branches to the garden tomb.
