Easter at the Minster


Easter is the most important Christian Festival. It is the Celebration of our Lord, Jesus Christ, releasing us from our sinful lives, and promising us eternal life. 

Our services begin on 25th March with the Palm Sunday Eucharist at 10.30. The service begins at the Woolshops and the procession of Palms, accompanied by a donkey, takes place to the Minster. At 4.00 there will be a Meditation with Words and Music for Palm Sunday.

From Monday 26th March to Wednesday 28th March, as well as our normal daily worship, there is a Eucharist at 7.30pm with Alan Riley, Reader Emeritus' preaching. 

On Maundy Thursday 29th March, there is no 12.30 Eucharist. The organ recital, given by Graham Gribbin, will feature reflective music. At 7.30 there is the Maundy Thursday Eucharist and Vigil until midnight.

On Good Friday, 30th March, there is a Children's Workshop at 10.30 and at 1.30 there is the Good Friday Liturgy.

On 31st March, Easter Eve, there is the Easter Vigil and Lighting of the New Fire at 7.00pm.
