Easter Vigil – Saturday 3rd April 8pm

Join us online on our Facebook page to hear readings and prayers as we retell each other God’s promises of salvation while we await the joy of Easter Day at our video Easter Vigil. The service will last about 50mins. https://www.facebook.com/StJamesLudgershall

Alternatively, there is also an in person Easter Vigil in the churchyard around the Easter fire, also at 8pm. Please dress warmly as the forecast is dry but cold.

Holy Week

Friends, here is a quick reminder of the Holy Week services and events here at St James:
All week: our Stations of The Cross in the Churchyard
Maundy Thursday: in addition to our published programme, an outdoor Holy Communion service at 10:30am. There will also be online services available from the Cathedral on Thursday throughout the day.
Good Friday: a video led Stations of The Cross contemplation will be broadcast on this page at 1pm
Holy Saturday: an in person outdoor Easter Vigil and Service of Light in the churchyard around the Easter fire, and also an online broadcast Easter Vigil here on this page, all at 8pm.
Easter Sunday: Dawn Service broadcast on this page from Sidbury Hill at 6:30am, followed by an in person churchyard service or Holy Communion and an online service also broadcast by Castledown FM at 10am.

Rev’d Tim and Rev’d Jimmy will also be distributing Communion on your doorstep, if you live in our parish and would like them to do this and are unable to come to our in person Communion on either Thursday or Sunday. If you would like to have your name added to their list, please message us. Thank you.
