Tenebrae today at 7.30pm

Maundy Thursday 6pm Sung Mass of the Lord’s Supper and Procession to the Altar of Repose
Foot washing is not permitted this year.
The watch before the Altar of Repose will conclude at midnight with Compline (or earlier if we cannot guarantee sufficient watchers to keep the church open).

Good Friday 3pm Solemn Liturgy of the Passion of the Lord
After the procession and showing of the Cross, it will be venerated at the chancel step by a genuflection or bow, but not by kissing.
Holy Communion will be administered (in one kind, as usual at present) at this Liturgy.

Holy Saturday 9pm Easter Vigil, Renewal of Baptismal Promises and first Mass of Easter
Please assemble in church: candles, with orders of service, will be placed on chairs, suitably spaced; the new light will be kindled in the church porch and the Paschal Candle will be processed from there.

Easter Day 11am Sung Mass

5.15pm Low Mass

6pm Evensong, Te Deum and Benediction

Please note, receiving communion at the Easter Vigil fulfils our Easter obligation, so it will help us to manage numbers this year if you choose to attend either the Vigil or the Sunday morning Sung Mass but not both.

Additionally, there will be a 5.15pm Low Mass on Easter Day, so if you are intending to come to Evensong that will be another opportunity to make your Easter communion.

All liturgies can be attended in person.

All except those on the evening of Easter Day will also be available online.



Proceeds from this year’s Lent Appeal will be divided between:

American Church Soup Kitchen in Tottenham Court Road
towards the costs of their mental health worker;

Anglican Communion Fund
supporting communities throughout the Anglican Communion often in the poorest and most dangerous parts of the world.

Bishop of London’s Lent appeal
focussing on Youth Violence – supporting three charities working in different ways with young people.
