What's On | Holy Week & Easter

Updated: Mar 29, 2021

Following Palm Sunday and the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem on a donkey, we now find ourselves in Holy Week.

Online Worship

Morning Prayer continues as usual on Facebook beginning at 10.00am this week. In the evening, the team will be visiting different places in Gloucester to lead Holy Week Reflections, Monday-Wednesday on Facebook at 7.00pm. On Thursday evening, we will be joining in with the Gloucester Cathedral's Maundy Thursday Communion live from the Cathedral at 7.30pm. This will replace Evening Prayer for this week!

On Good Friday, join online for The Last Hour at 2pm where we will reflect on the crucifixion and the amazing sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross. We will meet both in person in the church grounds and online on Sunday at 10.30am for Easter Sunday Celebration! If you would like to join in person then please email or contact us through the "get in touch" page.
