11am Chrism Eucharist in the Cathedral
Here the clergy renew their ordination vows and the oils for baptism confirmation and anointing of the sick are blessed. All are welcome to attend.
7.30 pm Agape and Eucharist meal in St George church followed by Gethsemane Vigil in the chancel.
‘Agape’ is the New Testament word for love and was the title of the fellowship meal of the early church. It often occurred in association with the Eucharist and is frequently adopted by the contemporary Christians on the night of the last supper. In this service we share together in the fellowship of a meal based on the Passover meal that Jesus ate with his friends at the last supper as well as sharing in the Eucharist.
At the end of the Eucharist and meal you are invited to enter the garden of Gethsemane (the chancel) for the watch, where we spent time with Jesus as he prays to his Father. You are free to stay as long as you like here but will be asked to leave the church in silence. The watch will end at 10.30 pm.
There will be a signup sheet at the back of each church for catering purposes. We will ask for donations to cover costs of food and suggest that you bring your own drinks.
All are invited to join with other Christians of all denominations in a Procession of witness to Cam Peak starting at 9 am outside St James, passing by St George’s church at around 9.45am.
This is immediately followed by (or at 12noon) Easter Kids a fun time for the whole family looking at the Easter story. This event is free and will include lunch, craft activities, stories and singing.

Here we are joined by St George’s Choir for a reflective service with readings, hymns, choir pieces and silence as we sit at the foot of the cross and stay with Jesus in the last hour of his life.
