This week is Holy Week

Maundy Thursday 

During the Mass of the Lord’s Supper in St Michael’s on Thursday 18th April at 7pm there is foot washing part of the ceremony.  If  you are able to volunteer for this please sign your name at the back of each church.

Easter Sunday Brunch 

After our Family Mass on Easter Sunday we will have our traditional Easter Brunch, the cost is £3, please sign the sheet at the back of church.

Benefice Magazine

After Easter Fr Ian is looking towards producing a Benefice Magazine but needs YOUR help with this.  He is willing to edit it but he needs people to be responsible for certain sections, collate information & forward it to him.  At the back of each church you will find a sheet outlining these sections.  Please put your name next to a section you are willing to be responsible for.  Should the sections not be filled then the magazine cannot go ahead as he hasn’t the time to do it all and this would be a shame as it would be a great outreach opportunity squandered.

Stations of the Cross

Every Friday during Lent at 7pm. Everyone welcome to this beautiful devotion.


This year’s Lenten appeal is for WaterAid.  There are collection jars and information about this charity at the back of church.

Seder Meal - Monday 15th April - 7pm

For centuries, Jewish people have partaken of the Seder Meal during Passover to remember celebrate the story of the Exodus ... how God resuced his people from campavity in Egypt & led them to the Promised Land.  As Christians we observe the Passover as a celebration filled with beauty & symbolism pointing to Jesus, the Messiah, our “Passover Lamb”.

On Monday 15th April at 7pm in St Mary Magdalene’s Church we will be holding a Seder Meal to hopefully enhance our understanding and appreciation of what Christ did at the Last Supper, which we will celebrate on Maundy Thursday.  Tickets for the Seder Meal, which includes a three course meal (main course is lamb roast with trimmings) plus wine is only £5 adults & £2 children.
