Holy Week is a significant time for Christians worldwide, and we at St Pauls & Barnabas Church would be honoured to have you join us in celebrating it. We will have several special services throughout the week, including Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Easter Sunday.
Palm Sunday is the day when we remember Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem, where he was welcomed by crowds waving palm branches and shouting praises. The following day, Maundy Thursday, we will commemorate the Last Supper, where Jesus shared bread and wine with his disciples, establishing the sacrament of communion. Unfortunately, it was also the night when Jesus was betrayed and arrested.
On Good Friday, we will remember the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, the ultimate sacrifice that redeemed us all. It was a day of deep sorrow, but it also serves as a reminder of God's incredible love for us. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16)
Easter Sunday is the most joyous day of the Christian calendar, marking the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. We will have a special service at St Pauls & Barnabas Church that will include a sermon on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and a communion service. It's a day of celebration and hope as we rejoice in the knowledge that death has been conquered and through faith in Jesus Christ, we have eternal life. "Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.'" (John 11:25-26)
We hope that you will join us for these special services during Holy Week as we reflect on the significance of these events and their impact on our lives. Come and celebrate with us and experience the love and hope that Easter brings. "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said." (Matthew 28:6)
