Easter Services 2019

Easter Services 2019

Maundy Thursday: 18th April

This year, instead of holding a Communion service in church, we are holding our Pesach meal on Maundy Thursday. Arrive in time from a 6pm prompt start. We celebrate a meal together, much as many Jewish families share their Passover (or Pesach) meal on this night. Woven into our celebration are some extra details, that make explicit how the Lord Jesus has brought this ancient family meal to its fulfilment. This is an event not to miss, but if you want to come you need to tell us for catering purposes. There is no charge, but we ask for donations to cover our costs.

The Pesach will be held in St Edith Hall.

Good Friday: 19th April

In both churches, there are services to help us mark Good Friday.

  • In Kemsing, there is an all-age service in the church at 9.30am. This lasts for about half an hour.
  • There is then a service on Green Hill (by the cross) for both churches at 10.30am. This lasts for about 20 minutes.
  • Everyone is then welcome back to Kemsing Church Hall for a drink and Hot Cross Buns.
  • In the afternoon, there are a couple of reflective service in Kemsing Church at 12.15pm until 1pm, and from 2pm to 3pm, featuring Scripture readings, hymns, items from the choir, short meditations led by members of the ministry team, prayers, and periods of silence.
