Holy Week and Easter 2021

God’s story, our story

This will be a Holy Week in which we immerse ourselves in the story of Holy Week, gathering outside, which is where much of the story takes place. We are invited to see the echoes in our own story, and to see how God’s story continues to unfold and be ‘written’ in our lives and the life of the world.
