Fringe show - Turbulent Priest

Fri 10 May at 1930
Sat 11 May at 1930 and matinee at 1430

From the creators of A Monk's Tale and The God Particle comes a new show telling the fascinating story of the Murder of Thomas Becket. With jokes and songs, obviously.

850 years ago Thomas Becket was famously murdered by four knights in Canterbury Cathedral. A Turbulent Priest follows the extraordinary story of Thomas and King Henry II, their bromance, bust-up and betrayals. In short, plenty to sing about.

Easter Eve Candlelit Service

10am - 12pm - Come and join us for decorating and spring cleaning the church

Our evening service for all the family starts at 8pm.

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.

We sing some songs and we gather round to hear the Easter story told...then afterwards, because the fire is still lit outside, we toast some marshmallows before heading home!

Everyone welcome!

Maundy Thursday service 7.30pm

Maundy Thursday service 7.30pm

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 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.'

For all families with children starting at our Primary School this September, come and join us for a cream tea at St Andrew's Vicarage (not the church- the vicar's home on Vallance Gardens, down the road opposite Tesco's and turn left). It's a great opportunity for your little ones (and you) to make friends and familiarise yourselves with the faces at the school gates.

No parking but do use the car park at the church if you need to, as we're 5 minutes walk away.
