GET ARTY THIS EASTER

COME AND CREATE ART THIS GOOD FRIDAY AND EASTER WEEKEND
Keeping the hours - church open noon til three Good Friday and when at Worship over Holy Week and Easter weekend.


The Stations of the Cross have formed part of Christian devotion at Passion-tide for many centuries because they enable us to engage actively with the path of suffering walked by Jesus.

They originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path to Calvary. They would pause for prayer and devotion at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.

In the late fourteenth century the Franciscans were given the responsibility for the holy places of Jerusalem and they erected tableaux to aid the devotion of the visitors. These kinds of images are now commonplace inside churches, and occasionally outside them.

This year we might begin to create our own version of the stations, offered by you. Thank you.

Please produce your image/creation on the canvas boards available in church. Bring your own drawing and painting medium if you wish but supplies available
Feel free to create your design in what ever way you wish? You may want to do a representation of the story in the bible reference, or maybe you are drawn to one part of the words? What does this station’s Title say or mean to you? Remember this is your image- there is no wrong or right!!
AND REMEMBER WE ARE ALL CREATIVE- NOT IN THE SAME WAY - WE ARE ALL MADE IN THE IMAGE OF THE CREATOR GOD!

HOLY WEEK AND EASTER


From earliest times, Christians have gathered to recall the story of God’s saving work, from creation through to the death and resurrection of Jesus. It is a hope that for each one of us this Easter there is a real experience of the new life that is a passing from darkness to light. Christ's triumphal entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the sixth Sunday of Lent is sharply juxtaposed with the Passion narrative, a complementary feature of that service.

We move then to Maundy Thursday (19:30). The Last Supper took place in "the upper room" of the house believed to have been owned by John Mark and his mother, Mary (Acts 12:12). This room is also the site of Pentecost. Here, Christ washed his disciple's feet. “Maundy" comes from the Latin word mandatum, meaning "command" from Christ's words in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you." Maundy Thursday is the first of the three days known as the "Triduum," and after this a more sombre attitude prevails because after his Last Supper, Christ went outside the Old City of Jerusalem, crossed the Kidron Valley, and came to the Garden of Gethsemane, a place whose name means "Olive Press," where olives still grow today. There He suffered, knowing what would befall Him: he knew He would be taking on all the sins of the world, He knew that, for some people, this Sacrifice would not be fruitful because they would reject Him. His Apostles fall asleep, He is betrayed by Judas with a kiss, He is seized by "a great multitude with swords and clubs, sent from the chief Priests and the ancients of the people" and taken before Caiphas, the high priest, before being taken to Pontius Pilate the next morning.

Good Friday will see All Saints participate in “The Ealing Passion Walk of Witness” gathering at St Mary’s at 9:55am for readings and prayers. After this we will process to Christ the Saviour Church. There will be songs that all the gathered can join in with. At 11.20am the dismissal will involve those gathered and passers-by being invited to Haven Green Baptist church for refreshments.
In the afternoon All Saints will be open from noon to keep the hours til three and culminate in a service to finish at 2:30 – a simple spoken service.

Holy Saturday will be marked this year at 6pm at St Paul’s Cathedral as local churches accompany candidates for confirmation for their confirmation there. This chimes with the early church’s preparation of candidates for the commitment they would make to become followers on ‘the way’ through baptism on Holy Saturday after a period of reflection and prayer as a catechumen. All Saints celebrates the confirmation of those we have had the privilege of preparing.

On Easter Sunday at 10:30 the Easter Gospel will be proclaimed with joy as our congregation is joined by the congregation from the 8 o’clock Book of Common Prayer service. This is an opportunity to come together across the generations and celebrate the resurrection. 


Eastertide commences.
