Easter is always a profound time. Here is what our Easter looks like in St Luke’s for 2019. You are most welcome to join us for any or all of these : )
April 18th Maundy Thursday 7pm
A time of Word, Sacrament and foot-washing, starting in the Whittingback
Hall and ending in the Sanctuary with the stripping of the altar.
April 19th Good Friday 10am
A service of Morning Prayer for Good Friday, with readings,
hymns and mediation.
Please note – no Easter Vigil to be held at St Luke’s this
April 21st Easter Day
Following the success of last year’s experiment, we repeat
our sunrise service. This simple service starts at 7:30am and will last for
about 45 minutes. We then have breakfast before our main celebration of Holy
Communion for Easter Day starts at 10am.
The Anglican Church of Southern Africa has an environmental network called Green Anglicans. They have a brilliant idea for Lent – fasting from the use of plastic, while reflecting on how our actions affect the world we live in. Each week has a theme – plastic bottles, food shopping, even clothing! Consider using this for your Lenten activity this year.
