A short, reflective service with readings, music and images.
This is a Good Friday workshop for children with their parents and carers, with activities lasting one and a half hours. We welcome you all!
Come and hear about the first Good Friday.
Meet the story; taste the food; sing the songs and make a cross.
This will be a service of Holy Communion, with washing of feet, followed by a Watch of Prayer until midnight. All are welcome to come and join any part of this service, for any time that they are able.
These five sessions will allow us to explore some of the symbols of John's gospel:
Week 1-Water, Week 2-Bread, Week 3-Light, Week 4-Shepherd, Week 5-Vine. You can download the accompanying booklet here.
At 12.30 pm there will be a simple, shared lunch of soup and bread with fruit. The discussion follows from 1 to 2.30 pm. Please let Castle St. Methodist Church know if you would like to attend. Rev Alison Walker - 01223 872862
Following the midweek Eucharist at St. Giles' Church and refreshments, we will use illustrations and images to guide our Lenten meditations on the cross.
Come and share questions and ideas. We hope to discover what really inspires, encourages, heartens and fulfils us, and share experiences and ideas. A newly-published book from ‘Praxis’, a group concerned with enriching worship, will help our discussions. Each week we shall meet in a relaxed, home environment. For more details and directions please contact Tom Ambrose.
To coincide with the reopening of Kettle's Yard, the Friends of St. Giles' Church are displaying rarely exhibited liturgical objects and vestments from St. Giles' Treasury. This will be for one afternoon only. We are delighted to be sponsored by Watts and Co, the world's foremost purveyor of fine ecclesiastical designs, textiles, furnishings and accessories. (They have provided vestments for the last five coronations.)
Entry is free.
We are delighted to invite you to another 'I wonder ...' story telling session at Castle Street Methodist Church on the theme of Easter. As usual, we will share a story and then there will be time and space for children to respond by talking, making and playing. There will be two groups running simultaneously, for 3-5 year old and 6-10 year old. Registration will be from 10.15am and story telling will start at 10.30am.
A FREE annual event for the local community, organised by churchatcastle. There will be two hours of fun activities for all the family and every child will receive an Easter activities book. Refreshments will be available, for which there will be a modest charge. Everyone is welcome.
