Keeping Holy Week

The parishes’ supply of Palm Crosses are being blessed and will eventually find their way into many homes.  Meanwhile, do fashion some sort of cross to put in your window for Palm Sunday and for Holy Week. 

Our shared Palm Sunday service is on West Lane Baptist Church’s Facebook page from 10.30, and remains accessible at any time after that.   https://www.facebook.com/westlanebaptist/

Our material for Palm Sunday is now on our Bronte Virtual Church site, including a summary of the support available locally for the isolated and vulnerable, a reflection and prayers.  brontevirtualchurch.blogspot.com

Our Curate’s three video reflections for Holy Week (or for 9.00 a.m., 12.00 noon and 3.00 p.m. on Good Friday) are on our parishes’ Facebook pages.   https://tinyurl.com/w23n68k

Below you will find details of an unusual and valuable opportunity to download a modern Passion Play being made specially available to us.  It would be the highlight of any Holy Week.

The picture is one of the Stations of the Cross in St James’, Cross Roads.

Our Holy Week coup

We were to have had nationally famous Riding Lights Theatre Company come to perform for the Worth Valley parishes on Tuesday.  It would have been the highlight of our Holy Week. 

Today’s post at brontevirtualchurch.blogspot.com makes known the performance they have offered any of us in local churches the chance to download to make up for the cancellation. 

And the daffodils in St Michael’s churchyard were photographed by our Rector on this daily exercise yesterday.

Latest at Bronte Virtual Church

Reflections keep getting added every second day to brontevirtualchurch.blogspot.com. The latest (Monday 30th March) builds on a meditation by a virtual Breathing Space group on Friday and live streamed worship facilitated by West lane Baptist Church on Sunday: “when we were still far off you met us in your Son and brought us home; anchor us firm in the hope you have set before us”.

The church clock has stopped

Perhaps this is appropriate.  We had been leaving the church open so that individuals could find space to pray alone.  But since then all church buildings have been asked to remain shut as part of the total discouragement for people to leave their homes.  Anyway, someone going out to access the church tower to wind the clock wouldn’t count as travelling to do essential work.  The church’s tower is silent and the gives the wrong time – the scattered church prays on ‘at all times and in all places’ (including brontevirtualchurch.blogspot.com).
