Holy Week and Easter

The services on Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday will help us enter into the story of the first Easter. We hope that you will be able to attend as many of the services as possible and use them to identify with Jesus’ Passion (suffering), Death, and Resurrection.
