HOLY WEEK 2020

Please click here for regular Sunday worship from 19/4/20 onward

Every day throughout Holy Week,

new worship materials will be added to this program.

With love from St Jude’s.

This is a Holy Week markedly unlike any other in our lifetimes.

At St Jude’s we want to join connection even in our isolation, through shared actions and a commitment to Christian witness and love in a time of trial. You may find Morning and or Evening Prayer (available for free on your mobile- just SKIP when it asks for church code) a helpful part of the rhythm of the week.

On Palm Sunday 2020, we invite you to put a palm or other green branch on your gate or door to witness to the start of Holy Week. We hope to get a new but dried palm cross in the post this week, but you may also like to make paper or plant based ones from home (click here to see how).

Choral work encore

On Holy Wednesday evening, St Jude’s choir planned to offer a choral work for the faithful. Due to social distancing and gathering restrictions this could not happen, but can offer you this encore of their 2017 ‘The 7 Last Words of Christ’ by Dubois: in PART 1 and PART 2.
