Holy Week: 24 – 31 March 2024

Holy Week: 24 – 31 March 2024

Everyone is welcome to join us for our Holy Week services and activities.

Holy Week is a journey from Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, through the events of the Last Supper and Garden of Gethsemane to the Cross and on to the joy and wonder of Easter Sunday.

We would love you to join us for this journey, or for as much of it as you are able to manage. Most of our services are suitable for older children, and we would love them to participate in the week with us. Please note that many of our services are Benefice Services, and a number are held at St Luke’s Church on the Avenue.

Lent Bible Study

Join us for our Benefice Lent Bible Study on Meeting God in Mark

Hosted at St Luke’s Church (The Avenue, Kew) on Thursdays, 10-11am, weekly from 15 February – 28 March.

In this year’s Lent Bible Study we’re going to be using Rowan Williams’ little Lent Book, Meeting God in Mark. Mark is the gospel that the Church of England’s lectionary focuses on this year, so it’s a great opportunity to read the whole of the (shortest) gospel and explore it in more depth with the help of the insight of Bishop Rowan.  

We’ll be following the daily reading plan and Sunday reflections that the book includes, and those hosting the sessions will draw on the lectures in the book in facilitating discussions.

You don’t have to buy the book as we will provide some material from it to cover the course, but if you do, you can find it in a lot of bookshops for around £10.99. You’ll be able to get the Reading Plan and Reflections as a pdf from the Parish Office.
