On Maundy Thursday, 18 April at 7.30pm we will, as a Benefice, be exploring the Jewish Festival of Passover with a shared three course meal. Exploring the celebration which dates back to the exodus of the Israelites in Egypt, which subsequently evolve Christian service of Holy Communion. The occasion that Jesus longed to share with his disciples before his betrayal, torture, death and resurrection.

As we will be providing a meal, we would ask that you book your place to assist with catering. Speak to Delia on 07754 786005. Invite your friends and family from further a field if you think they would benefit from this preparation for Easter. Depending on response this will take place either in St James Church or at 3 Moat Farm Lane, Bishampton.

On Good Friday, we gather together at North Piddle at 7.30pm, there is a misprint in the magazine which says 5.30pm. A time of quiet contemplation on the events of Good Friday, we ask nothing of you other than come and listen.

On Easter Sunday morning we gather together at Grafton Flyford for a service of Easter Holy Communion at 11am.

Looking ahead to the 3rd Sunday of Easter 5th May, Abberton will be holding a Rogation Service and Holy Communion at 11am. The usual procession around the village will not take place although part of the service will be held outside.
