Holy Week and Easter

Easter and Holy week, were celebrated with solemnity and joy.

The Church looked at its beautiful best, colourfully decorated with fantastic flower arrangements.

Throughout the week we joined wih our friends from the Benefice churches of St. John's, Fishponds and St. Michael's, Two Mile Hill to 'live' the drama of Holy Week.

Evening prayer, Canon Neville Boundy's,'Father, Son, Son, Father, povided an evening's meditation. Stations of the Cross, an Agape meal together  and a Watch through whole of Maundy Thursday night brought us to Good Friday.

A group walked from St. John's via St. Michael's and St. Aidan's, stopping for prayer at each, to Summerhill Methodist church where we joined with others for Hot Cross Buns. We then walked together to Troopers Hill for the annual and long established ecumenical service of the cross next to the prominent chimney, from where we are able to look over our city.

On Holy Saturday evening we celebrated Easter with a service of New Fire and Renewal of Baptism vows.

On Easter Sunday we again celebrated together by sharing the Eucharist. This was special as the three strands of our family came together for worship- Messy Church, The Bristol Deaf Church and the Sunday morning congregation.

During the Sunday service the Easter Garden was blessed and the Stone rolled away,  all the children had a 'front row' view.

Also during the service a cross made from the old Christmas tree was decorated with daffodils and other brightly coloured flowers by members of the congregation, so turning the drab cross of shame into a glorious cross of triumph.

After the service we all enjoyed Homemade traditional Easter Biscuits and the youngsters (of 'all' ages) went on an Easter Egg Hunt.

Alleluia, Christ is Risen, He is Risen indeed, Alleluia.

A Blessed and Peaceful Easter to you all.

Pictures for all the events can now be found in the Gallery section here.
