Well, here we are, almost at the beginning of Holy Week, the most significant and momentous week in the Christian year.
The week starts off with a special service on Palm Sunday at 11 am in Llantilio Crossenny, when Archdeacon Ian Rees will be joining us for worship.
He will be accompanying us throughout Holy Week as we recall the events of that first Holy Week and remember the trial, crucifixion, and death of Jesus.
There will be a service on every evening of Holy Week, where we will be able to listen to the reflections of Archdeacon Ian in the various churches in our new ministry area. Everyone is most welcome to come along.
We will re-enact the foot-washing on Maundy Thursday in a service at Llandewi Rhydderch church as we think of The Last Supper when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples.
And on Good Friday at 9am we have our traditional pilgrimage up the Holy Mountain (Skirrid Fawr), where we stop and reflect on Jesus’ walk to the cross.
In the evening of Good Friday we have a performance of Stainer’s “Crucifixion”, which tells so powerfully through music and song, the story of God’s eternal love.
Then on Easter Morning – we will be able to join with people all over the world celebrating the glorious news of Christ’s Resurrection.
We may be worshipping in small, remote country churches, but there is something wonderful knowing that we do so in communion with Christians all over the world.
If you are unable to come to church and would like to receive the sacrament at home, please do let me know.
Where two or three are gathered together in His Name, He shall be there.
Wishing you all the joys and blessings of Easter.
