Lent and Easter

Easter flowers at St John the Baptist, Westbourne

Worship in Holy Week

The Rector writes: "This is the most solemn week of the Church’s year, a special time of Christian devotion. Perhaps join us for weekday worship: morning prayer online at 08.30-09.00am, Mon-Thurs; and/or evening worship at 7.30pm in church all days except Friday (when our gatherings are earlier in the day).

"Chichester Cathedral also offers a rich fare of worship in Holy Week, either in person or online via the website. This includes an 8pm Compline service."
