Good Friday Walk of Witness – a Personal Journey – CTiM Good Friday 2020 Walk of Witness

Whilst we can’t do this in a gathered way, we are can still go on a personal and spiritual journey as individuals. What we are suggesting is this…

At 11am why not sit quietly, light a candle, and use the service sheet attached to go on a spiritual pilgrimage of the heart. Use this time to allow the Lord to lead us on the Easter journey.

Why not stand in your garden, or on your doorstep and pray for your street, your community and all those who are unwell.

Finally, why not close by having a hot cross bun!!

Easter Sunday

A service will be online on our normal channels celebrating the Risen Christ!

Normally Easter looks a little like this;

We have a full range of services and activities for all the family at St Gabriel’s. It starts on Sunday 5th April, with a celebration of Palm Sunday, with Palm Crosses and a joyous celebration.

On Maundy Thursday, we will be experiencing the last supper with a meal together and then following the example of the last supper of eating bread and wine (this service is subject to Coronavirus limitations) just like Jesus did at the last supper.

Our Good Friday morning service is our Messy Church Easter Celebration, with lots of crafts, activities, worship and a meal together.

Easter Sunday is one of our highlights of the year, lots of celebrations, joy, and even an Easter Egg hunt after the service, no need to let us know, just turn up and enjoy!
