A refresher course in what it means to be a Christian

April 19th -22nd

This three day 'Cursillo' residential weekend at Cold, Ash, near Thatcham is designed for people already committed to Christ and intends to be a preparation for the full life that God promises. During the weekend, lay people and clergy give a series of short talks that offer a concentrated course in Christian living. These talks are intermingled with a series of meditations. You are encouraged to take part in discussions in small groups of people who, like you, who are searching, discovering and growing in their faith. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the vicar.

Summary of Easter Programme

Maundy Thursday (29th March)

7.30pm Littlewick Communion followed by the Vigil

At the last Supper Jesus' washed his disciples' feet. We re-enacted this as the priest washes the feet of representative members of the parish. This is followed by the Communion, obeying Jesus' command at the Last Supper, "Do this in remembrance of me." Then the transition to Good Friday begins, the altar is stripped, and all decoration removed, symbolising the stripping of Jesus clothing and dignity. The lights are dimmed as a vigil begins; the church remains open for quiet prayer until 10.30pm.

Good Friday (30th March)

10.30am Hurley: Family Service

followed by Hot Cross Buns. We hear the story of the first Good Friday and hint at the good news to come.

Good Friday Meditation

1.30pm Stubbings:

We wait with Jesus as he dies on the cross, using reflections, prayers and music. At 2.30pm, the Passion Gospel is read.

After the children leave for Explorers Sunday School in the Priory Room we recall the last Supper as we celebrate communion before accompanying Jesus through the last week of his life in readings and hymns.
