Hosanna. Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord!

We rejoice together and begin to return to our churches. And we mark this holy time as one Parish with two churches. Everyone is very warmly welcome at any service. On Palm Sunday, join us at Christ Church to recall Jesus’ triumphal entry to Jerusalem, then St Mary’s with music and words for Holy Week. We celebrate the Last Supper at Christ Church on Maundy Thursday, and reflect on the crucifixion at St Mary’s on Good Friday. And there are many more services.

Alleluia, Christ is risen

We celebrate the resurrection at both our churches. There are services and events for all ages. Join the party.
