Maundy Thursday

Gwyneth led an evening service, focussed on the significant features of the Passover Meal.
We were delighted to have friends from the URC joining us for this service.

Good Friday

The Churches in Blandford joined together in their "Journey to the Cross". Worship and a walk of witness (carrying a cross) between the churches was based around the Stations of the Cross. At each church visited (Evangelical, Catholic, United Reformed, Methodist and Anglican) readings appropriate to the "Stations" were shared and time given to reflect on them. The musicians at the Evangelical Church and at the Parish Church provided the opportunity to worship in song at the start and at the end of the morning.
At each church visit we concluded with the Responsive prayer:

We adore you, O Christ, and we praise you,
Because by your holy cross you have redeemed the world.

Members from our own church then returned to BMC for our own time of reflection which was led by Alison.

Easter Sunday

Once again the Churches in Blandford met together — this time to celebrate the Resurrection.
A short service was held on The Milldown at 6am — a "Sunrise" (SON-rise?) service.

Before the morning service the ad hoc Easter choir met for final rehearsal and it was in the service that they made their debut. The service was lead by Alison who was joined by Gwyneth — when she arrived from earlier services elsewhere in the Circuit.
