Holy Week is an important time in the Christian calendar, as we prepare our hearts for Easter.

Our Lent readings from Matthew’s Gospel will continue every day this week on Facebook live, starting on Monday 29th March at 6 p.m. It’s good to read the Easter story each day so that our hearts take in afresh the enormity of all that happened.

Our Easter services in church (and on Zoom and Facebook live) will be on Maundy Thursday (1st April) at 7:30 p.m., Good Friday (2nd April) at 6.00 p.m. and on Easter Sunday (4th April) at 10.30 a.m. and 6.00 p.m.

We will also be giving out Easter gift bags from Market Street on Wednesday 31st March along with Dearne Churches Together. Please pray as we distribute Easter crafts, booklets, puzzles and chocolate to 88 families in total.

Finally, we will be giving out the hearts collected as part of the ‘Whispers of Love’ project to residents and staff in care homes and distributing these in Thurnscoe, Goldthorpe and Bolton-on-Dearne as part of our ‘Take Back The Streets’ prayer meeting on Saturday 3rd April from 10 a.m. Please join us to pray and then scatter to distribute these hearts as symbols of God’s love for our communities.
