Wishing you a blessed Holy Week and Easter from all at St Giles’

holyweek

We really hope that you’re able to join us at the culmination of our lenten journey this week. You may know the story well, vaguely or not at all – but the events which took place leading to Jesus’ death on the cross are as powerful and as relevant in today’s world as they have ever been. And we know that the story never ends..

We have a lot of services this week – and you are very welcome. Our Easter Vigil on Saturday 15th of April at 8pm is not a ‘well-known’ about service – but it is one of the most poignant occasions in our church life. The ‘Exultet’ is sung and is an ancient hymn of the church and recounts the saving acts of God in the Old and New Testaments. Why not come along and hear it for yourself?

We thank you that Easter is not about a people,
but all people,
that your love and your Salvation
are for all who confess
with voices, hearts and lives
that the tomb is empty
because Jesus is risen,
that we might know forgiveness,
that lives might be reborn
and your name
glorified now and for eternity.
