The liturgies of Holy Week and Easter are a time to recall and celebrate the events at the very heart of Christianity — Jesus' trial, execution, and resurrection. Join us online and in-person as we mark this holiest time of year.


Please remember that if you are attending worship in the church that face coverings (masks) are required at all times, that households may not mix, and that there will be no hymns, or choir. Test & Trace check-in is in place, as are hand sanitizer stations, and the eucharist (communion) will be "in one kind" (that is, only the consecrated bread). These COVID-safe restrictions apply even if you have been vaccinated.

Cost: Free
