Maundy Thursday Service, Gethsemane Watch

St. Giles' Church, Castle St., Cambridge CB3 0AQ

Following the Maundy Thursday service, which will include the celebration of the first Lord's Supper and the rite of foot washing, the church will be stripped bare of ornaments.
The elements of the eucharist will be moved to the Lady Chapel and a quiet vigil will be held there. This is a response to Jesus' request that the disciples "Stay here and keep watch with me" in the Garden of Gethsemane. Matthew 26: 36-46 You are welcome to stay for any time during the vigil.
