COMING UP

EIGHT ASH GREEN HOLY COMMUNION – Maundy Thursday, 18th April at 11am – Straight Answers.

PASSOVER MEAL RE-ENACTMENT AND REFLECTION – Maundy Thursday in the John Owen Barn – Evening Event – 7.30-9.30pm.  We are delighted that Kevin and Rosie Lewis are leading us through an evening of insight and reflection. They will talk through how the Passover meal would have been celebrated in Jesus’ day. It will be a traditional evening of Passover food and hymns.  This will be a wonderful way to consider how our Lord celebrated Passover with his disciples the evening before his death and help us understand what he was saying at the Last Supper. Food will be sufficient for you to not eat beforehand! This will be a ticketed event – £2 – which will be available each Sunday leading up to the event at the back of the church and in the church office.

 

SCHOOL EASTER SERVICE – Everyone is welcome to come and support and enjoy being with the local families:  Holy Trinity School Easter Service is on Friday 26th April at Eight Ash Green Church.
