Easter Day was particularly memorable in the Benefice this year.

Once again, we will be celebrating Maundy Thursday with a special supper in Chadlington Church at 7.00 pm. We will be serving Lamb Stew (and a vegetarian option), unleavened bread, grapes and wine. Each course will be interspersed within parts of the Communion service, and Communion will be shared around the table. At the end of the meal, the tables will be cleared, and we will ‘go off into the night’ as those first disciples did after Jesus’ arrest in the garden.
You are warmly invited to join us. Everyone is welcome – children as well as adults – but to help with the catering, we need an idea of numbers. If you wish to come, please let us know by clicking here before Tuesday. A donation to cover the cost of the food and wine is appreciated.
People have found these services very moving in the past. If you haven’t been to one of them before, why not think about coming this year? It would be lovely to have you join us as we journey together towards Easter Day.
