A Call to Pray Ireland Palm Sunday, 5th April 2020 3pm – 4pm
Join us in this island-wide, Church-wide call to prayer this Sunday! We’ll be joining with Christians across the island of Ireland form every background/denomination/tradition to lift our hearts and voices together in prayer for our world, our land, our neighbours and loved ones. In unity and togetherness.
We’re encouraged by the unity we’ve seen among the churches, and really among the Church, as we’ve all rallied together for this call to prayer in this time of need. We want to lift our eyes to Jesus in these times and speak a confident hope not only to our own heart, but to the world around us. We lift our eyes and remember where our help comes from. We lift our voices in praise and prayer. We let our hearts be moved in love and compassion.
Join us! . This is not a movement of one church or agency, but a movement of the Church. And it requires all of us.
In these days leading up to Easter day 2020, it would be very easy with everything else going on to forget what we are doing and the time of year it is.
However as Christians at this time of year we do recall again the events of that week in the life of Jesus. This year it holds particular meaning – the pain, the isolation, the despair, the darkness and ultimately the death of our Lord and saviour.
As a church this year – we are not meeting as we had planned to do – with Bishop Harold Miller leading our thoughts this week. However, as parish we’re doing a few other things – as well as linking into the on-line resources being produced in the diocese.
Palm Sunday 11am – Morning with with Robert Ferris leading, Dave Backhouse on worship, Matt Gould preaching and Pam Wood leading prayers.
Tuesday of Holy Week – 12 Noon – with Robert Ferris & Máirt Hanley – Noon Day Prayers – on our Youtube Channel
Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 10 am – Holy Week Liturgies with Robert & Ian (These will be made available to pray later)
On this page you will find other materials produced by the diocesean clergy team to help in our thoughts and prayers as they become available – including a reading of the Passion Narrative, A Tenebrae service and other material.
