By sharing in this Passover meal, our Church recalls that Jesus of Nazareth, whom we claim to be the Lord Christ, celebrated the Passover with his disciples and, by his words and actions, transformed it into something which is at the centre of our worship, the Eucharistic Feast.
If you would like to be present at this service with a Passover Meal, which recalls the Last Supper and
incorporates the Eucharist and stripping of the altar, please contact The Rev’d Irene Smith on 01538 722975.
