Holy Communion with Palm Procession
Date:
25th March 2018
Time:
10:00am- 11:00am
Description:
A service following the Common Worship service with Holy Communion.

This is the Sunday before Easter Sunday. It is the first day of Holy Week and celebrates Jesus' arrival in Jerusalem riding on a colt, often referred to as a donkey. Crowds of people greeted him, throwing palm branches on the road.

Anglican and Roman Catholic churches give out small crosses made from palm leaves, as a reminder of Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem and his death on the cross. Some Christians keep these in their homes all year as a symbol of their faith.

We will process round church (outside if the weather is fine) and sing a special hymn - everyone welcome.

A service for the whole community, with more adult sermon and prayers. Children (Pre school to Year 7) meet in church, then go over to St Peter’s House for their own activities teaching and prayer, returning later in the service for communion.

Everyone is invited to come forward to receive communion or a blessing.

There is a creche area in church for babies and pre-school children with their carers. Baby changing and kitchen facilities are available in St Peter's House.

Join us afterwards for refreshments in St Peter’s House.
