Ready Steady Sunday

Meets in the church hall at Measham and is especially for families and children – informal time of games, craft and a thought for the day as well as something to eat. All in under an hour

Holy Communion

A short service of Communion to focus us on God in the mid-week

Sunday March 18th at 11 a.m.

Passion Sunday All age service with baptism

The mood of Lent changes on Passion Sunday as the shadow of the cross falls more clearly across Jesus’ path but we rejoice to welcome a new little one into the fellowship of the church

Sunday March 25th at 11am

Palm Sunday Procession service

At about 10.30 a.m. we leave church to parade round the village led by the scout band, and then at 11am our service starts. We give palm crosses to all as a sign of Jesus’ love for us; his willingness to pay the ultimate price for us and watch as he walks on into Holy Week

Thursday March 29th at 7.30 p.m.

Maundy Thursday Holy Communion

A choice of 2 venues for this evening service: Holy Trinity Church in Normanton-le-Heath or St Michael’s Church in Appleby. A deeply moving service as we remember the last meal that Jesus enjoyed with his followers prior to his death. In addition to the meal of Holy Communion, we offer the washing of feet or hands – to be reminded of Jesus’ washing his disciples’ feet.

Friday March 30th at 11 a.m.

Good Friday and the Way of the Cross

A more meditative service in which we hear readings from the Bible that take us through this most important of days – Jesus’ sacrifice of himself in love for us.

Sunday April 1st at 11 a.m.

Easter Day and Resurrection. Holy Communion  

Jesus was raised from death to life. Alleluia! This service is for all ages and is more informal. We wonder at the greatness of God

Sunday April 1st at 6 p.m.

Easter Days Songs of Praise

The hymns of Easter are wonderful in their joy. Come and have a good sing! This service is held at Holy Rood Church in Packington
