The momentous days of passion

As fellow pilgrims journeying to the cross of Golgotha, I hope that in the next few days we may share our faith, hopes and fears together.
These are momentous days in the life of the church and our own inner lives. Please make the most of this opportunity to grow that we might become a more Christ-like Church. The services are set out below. In this season of passion, I passionately hope that we can walk the way of the cross together.
