We pray that your Lent is proving to be a time of spiritual refreshment and preparation for Holy Week and the Easter celebrations. There have been reflective services in Holy Week at Whirlow for many years and this year is no exception. Stations of the Cross (Seiger Koder) will be set up all week and the The Chapel will be open on Holy Monday and Holy Tuesday for individual reflection, 7-8.30pm. On Holy Wednesday, Jane Johnston will lead reflections from Isaiah 53 - 'By his stripes we are healed'. Our Chaplain Joy Adams will lead 'From the Table to the Garden - a Maundy Journey' on Maundy Thursday. Both begin at 7pm.
The Good Friday service will be framed around Seiger Koder's Stations of the Cross, again starting at 7pm.. Then on Holy Saturday we meet at 8pm to hear the Story of Salvation led by Di Williams and Jeremy Timm, both of Contemplative Fire. At 10pm we'll share in soup and fellowship before beginning an Easter Vigil at 11pm, which will go through to 5am to a reflection on Darkness Yielding led by Joy again.
We finish with celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ with communion and renewal of baptismal vows on Easter Morning, followed by croissantsand coffee.
You are welcome to join us at any of the above events, no need to book although it would be helpful for us to know if you wish to join us for soup on Holy Saturday or croissants and coffee on Easter Sunday, phone 0114 235 3704 or sign up at Whirlow.
We pray you meet the resurrected Christ in a fresh and inspiring way this Easter.
