Holy Week and Easter Day are the most important festivals in the Christian calendar. The week begins with Palm Sunday when we process from one church to the other. On Maundy Thursday we remember Jesus’ actions at the Last Supper when he instructed his disciples to remember him when they shared bread and wine. Jesus also taught the important of servanthood by washing his disciples’ feet. At our Maundy Thursday service, we recall that action, as the Rector washes the feet of members of the congregation.
On Good Friday, All Saints hosts services during the time when Christians recall Jesus’ crucifixion.
On alternate years, the ‘Living Easter’ – retelling The Easter Story around the village – takes place on Holy Saturday.
Easter morning begins with a sunrise service and, later in the day, a Family Easter Service takes place with an Easter Egg Hunt.
