Worship for Easter!

Dear Friends,

We have a busy weekend ahead with services on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  We will meet on Friday at 11 a.m. at our usual Sunday venue, 18 Pa Tan Road. There will be no Wednesday Night Group this week due to Holy Week and Songkran.  On Friday we will remember the death of Christ, in a service including a long dramatised reading from John’s Gospel.  On Sunday we will have a joyful resurrection Eucharist!  As William and Tarntip will be away on Easter Sunday, we are having a pot-luck before they leave after the Good Friday service.

The Good Friday readings are taken from Isaiah 52:13-53:12, Hebrews 4:14-16; 5:7-9, and John 18:1-19:42, and we will be singing the hymns O Sacred Head, Now WoundedWere You There When They Crucified My Lord?, and When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.  I will send details of the Easter Sunday service on Saturday.

Video of our Palm Sunday procession and the Bible readings and sermon can be found on the Audio-Visual and as always, directions can be found on the Where and When page.  Most people get to hear about us via the internet or by word of mouth, so please feel free to pass on this email to others.  All are welcome to join us as we share the presence of the risen Jesus in our lives!
