Easter Eve is a time of hushed anticipation. The excitement we feel on Christmas Eve as we wait to celebrate again Jesus' birth is multiplied on Easter Eve as, like the disciples, we gather together at the church for a short service to prepare for the huge celebration of the following morning!
The service begins at the church door with a lit charcoal brazier and the church in darkness. Then candles are lit from the fire and as each person takes their candle into the dark church the light spreads reminding us of Jesus, the light of the world, bringing light, hope and salvation.
Everyone of all ages welcome!
In the busyness how often do we take the time to be silent, to pray, to listen to God's word and reflect on the weight of the sacrifice Jesus made for us. Join us at 2pm for a Good Friday reflection.
The church will be open from 9am and the service will run from 2pm for about 40 minutes.
The Maundy Thursday service is a poignant time to dwell on Jesus serving his disciples before his crucifixion and the world by his crucifixion.
The service includes the chance to replay Jesus washing his disciples feet. This is not compulsory though! After communion the service ends with silence and people may either leave or stay to pray. The church will remain open until midnight on Good Friday for prayer with readings from John's gospel on the hour.
'Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.'
Come and join us to celebrate Palm Sunday and then as a church we're going to take to the pavements to cheer on the Brighton Marathon Runners and give out much needed Jelly Babies! The runners pass us at 16 and 18 miles so it's a crucial part of the race and they need real spurring on!
