Special Services at St Dunstan's Church


March 31st at 10.00 am, Mothering Sunday Service (without communion)

This will be a special celebratory service for all ages.

April 14th at 10.00 am Palm Sunday Procession and Passion Narrative (start of Holy Week)

This service starts in A4010 lay-by with a procession to St. Dunstan's. There is an opportunity for children and adults to wave palms branches to remind us of Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. However, the mood soon darkens as we listen to the story leading up to Jesus' crucifixion.

Monday April 15th at 8.00 pm Stations of the Cross

We pause for prayer and reflection as we trace the horrific stages that culminated in Jesus' death at Calvary. On the Tuesday and Wednesday evening of Holy Week at 8.00 pm there will be a short service of 'night prayer' known as Compline. There is also a sung Communion service on Maundy Thursday at 7.30 pm which reminds us of the events surrounding 'the last supper'. On Good Friday at 2.00 pm there is a service of music, readings and reflections 'at the foot of the Cross' in St. Dunstan's.

Sunday April 21st Easter Day

We meet with other local churches in the Whiteleaf Cross car park at 6.00 am for a short 'sunrise service' that starts at 6.10 am above Whiteleaf Cross. This is followed by a bacon sandwich and hot drink. Other services then follow at St. Dunstan's at 8.00 am, 10.00 am and 6.00 pm.

Monday April 29th at 8.00 pm Annual Meetings

This is a time to look back upon the last 12 months of church life and to look forward to the year ahead. Drinks will be served from 7.30 pm.

Patronal Festival, Sunday May 19th at 11.00 am

We gather for an all age celebration service (without Holy Communion) before tucking in to a tasty Barbeque. Ticket details for the barbeque can be found in this Newsletter and you don't need to come to service to come to the Barbeque!
