Thursday, April 9th – Maundy Thursday
We remember Jesus washing the feet of his disciples, giving them the commandment to love, and instituting the Lord’s Supper. We will attempt to record the Stripping of the Altar (with readings from Psalm 22 and Matthew 26:30-46). This is done annually in preparation for Good Friday. Even though we can’t gather in the church building, the stripping of the altar is a powerful act that reminds us of Jesus’ impending crucifixion and death.

Friday, April 10th – Good Friday
Audio Service – The Commemoration of the Lord’s Passion  – This service incorporates what are known as the Seven Last Words of Jesus from the Cross with music, prayer, reflections and responses.

11 am* – Walk with the Cross – A resource is available from the Wolfville Area Inter-Church Council (WAICC) to use on your daily walk or drive to help you reflect on the story of Jesus’ passion and death and how his suffering relates to the suffering of the world. *We encourage those who are able to walk at 11am as a sign of solidarity with fellow Christians in the Wolfville area. We can’t gather in person but walking at the same time in our own neighbourhoods (while maintaining 6’ of physical distance from others) is still a powerful witness.

Saturday, April 11th – Holy Saturday
Between Cross and Resurrection – A short audio service with readings and poetry giving space for the in-between times in our lives.

Sunday, April 12th – Easter Day (listen for church bells ringing throughout our community at 11am)

Audio service – A Service of the Word (Contemporary service from The Book of Alternative Services)

We celebrate the resurrection of the Lord even as we find ourselves behind closed doors like those first disciples. In spite of the challenges we face, Easter comes and new life emerges. On your daily walk or drive look and listen for signs of new life. Send us a list of three signs/sounds of new life and we’ll include them on a paper chain to be created outside the main entrance of the church.
