Good Friday Stations of the Cross Service

On Good Friday both congregations came together for our Stations of the Cross service. This year the material came from Cafod and was inspired by the people of Uganda. We particularly focussed on the problems with securing a clean water supply that continues to affect a quarter of the country. This impacts on life at many levels - washing, cooking, drinking, growing crops and children being able to attend school.

 

We Celebrate the Feast of the Passover

On Tuesday of Holy Week members of both our congregations came together at St Alban's Parish Centre to celebrate a symbolic Feast of the Passover. Led by Fr Paul Newman and Rev Peter Bates we took the opportunity to attempt to connect with the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Jesus was a practising Jew and His death and resurrection took place against the background of the joyful feast of the Passover, when the Jewish nation celebrates the liberation of God's people from slavery in Eygpt.
