Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday (traditionally called “Passion Sunday”) begins the holiest of weeks in the Christian calendar. Through it we are brought more deeply into the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We retrace the triumphal entrance of Christ into Jerusalem with a Palm Procession, followed by a reading of Christ's arrest and crucifixion, and celebrate communion.

Jesus deliberately chooses to ride a lowly donkey into the city in contrast to Roman military power, representing how humanity can live together.

In the second half of the service, we experience Jesus's crucifixion – the point was that nothing whatever could stop him from enacting the kingdom of life. Death had no more dominion.

Come and journey with us this Easter. All are welcome!
