Services at Christchurch

during Holy Week and Easter

14th – 21st  April

Holy Week is the week preceding Easter and is the final week of Lent. During this week we commemorate the events in the last days of Jesus’ life on earth with a number of services to help us reflect upon the meaning of Jesus’ death on the cross and his Resurrection.

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me (St. Paul writing to the Galatians: ch. 2 v. 20)
