Easter at St. Barts

Isolation and change to our regular routine can be especially challenging. The following series of 13 reflections are designed to help support good mental health in challenging circumstances. They can be followed on-line, or there is a downloadable booklet.

Below are details of all the ways in which you can join Rev'd Jim in celebrating EASTER. There are also links to prayer resources, a letter from Revd Jim Perry and an explanation of Spiritual Communion, a way to share in the communion of Jesus Christ, even from the enforced distance we find ourselves in.

NB: For those who do not subscribe to Facebook, all the services listed below will be made available on this page soon afterwards. 

Maundy Thursday

One way households can hare in Maundy Thursday together is by holding 'Agape Meal'. Chelmsford Diocese has made suitable liturgy available to download and as this does not include Holy Communion, it can be celebrated together in any household. This is a very simple version of the Liturgy and meal at the heart of the service we would have been holding at St. Bart's on Maundy Thursday.

At 6.30pm Rev'd Jim will celebrate the Eucharist at home as part of Evening Prayer. We are all invited to join in Evening Prayer using the booklets previously sent out, and to use the 'Spiritual Communion' prayers following the Eucharist. The service will be live-streamed on St. Bart's Facebook page.
