Thursday 24 March: Maundy Thursday
- Tenebrae Service: Our service is at 19h00 and we have a short devotion followed by a simplified communion and a series of dramatised readings reflecting on the Last Supper and the gathering darkness (Tenebrae) of the coming cross. (Maundy is an old English word referring to the footwashing that Jesus did at the Last Supper.)
Friday: Good Friday
- Morning Worship: We have a joint Grace & Emmanuel service at 8h30. Come and join us as we see how each of the Gospel Writers sees the Crucifixion.
- Contemporary Gospel Music: In the evening at 19h00 we’ll be listening to a collection of contemporary Christian Music reflecting on the Life, Death and Resurrection of Jesus. We start with coffee and rusks and should be done by 20h30.
- Risen Movie: This is a movie that is on circuit. Reviews have been reasonable. (Focus on the Family gave it a 4 out of 5 for helping us understand the times Jesus lived, died and rose in.) It is about a Roman Centurion who is charged with finding out what happened to Jesus body. It is rated PG13 and although it isn’t explicitly Christian in its approach, it could be thought-provoking. We may go as an informal group, so contact me if you’re interested in being part of that.
- Son-rise Service: On Sunday we celebrate the empty tomb at sunrise. We meet on a piece of land we are considering as a future home for Grace congregation. (See map below or click HERE) Please be there at 5h45 for 6h00. Bring chairs or a picnic blanket , a flask of hot water for tea and coffee and some hot-cross buns.
- Emmanuel Service: Join us at 8h30 to celebrate the Resurrection and Thomas’ experience of the Risen Lord.
- Grace Service: Join as at 10h30 to celebrate the Resurrection and Peter’s experience of the Risen Lord.
- Evening Service: Join as at 18h30 to celebrate the Resurrection and the Emmaus Couple’s experience of the Risen Lord. The evening service will round off the whole week so please make a special effort to attend this.
We hope you will join us at these special services. Attend as many as you can and let it be a spiritual pilgrimage which God’s Holy Spirit may use to reignite our passion and our hope.
With much love,
