Holy Week and Easter services 2014

Maundy Thursday 17 April: 8pm

"So you must do as I have done for you..."

An evening of scripture, silence, chant and ritual designed to deepen our sense of community around the basin/baptistery and communion table. All participation is optional, simply come and be in the presence of Christ and each other.

Good Friday 18 April: 3pm

"Let your pain become the pain"

Beginning with reflection on the seven shadows of Jesus’ final hours, and moving into a stretch of meditation around the baptismal (equidistant) cross, with music and guided reflections.

Easter Day 20 April 10.30am

“Waking in the Easter garden”

An all age celebration service with poetry, songs, stations, scripture readings, and the flowering of the cross. Shared lunch afterwards - all welcome.



We seek to be a transforming community following in the Way of Jesus Christ, through practices of prayer, hospitality, and engagement in our world - local & global.

We hope to nurture depth, beauty and vitality in ourselves and in the world around us.

We aim to sustain and resource Christian practice, and work towards the restoration of all of life.

Cityside: thinking allowed; thinking aloud allowed.
