Special Services

 

Worship lies at the heart of the Christian life,
It is in worship that we express our theology and define our identity.
It is through encountering God within worship that we are formed
(and transformed) as God’s people.

Reflections on the Church’s Year

Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury from 2002-2012, has recorded video reflections for a number of significant liturgical seasons. Please access by clicking on the links.

Lent

Lent is a time to "sweep and clean the room of our own minds and hearts so that the new life really may have room to come in and take over and transform us at Easter".

Holy Week

Holy week 'A week when we discover in a way we don't at any other time just who we are and who God is'.

Easter

Easter as a "journey... Easter is lots of stories rolled into one and it can make real demands on us."

Pentecost

Pentecost, the seventh Sunday after Easter, is 'the moment when the friends of Jesus discover that they can communicate to all sorts of people they never thought that they would be speaking to'.

Advent

Advent: 'It is a time of expectation and a time of hope. A time, therefore, also of quiet'.
