Holy Week 01
Resources for Children 1

In the course of our busy week, even if we are currently in 'lockdown' we most likely have times set apart for certain things that are important to us — a workout, walk or cycle ride (maintaining 'social distancing' of course!), a few social phone calls, or maybe even a short catnap — so that we can renew ourselves, our energy, and our perspective.

Holy Week is a time that is set apart in our Church's year for our spiritual renewal. In fact, the word 'holy' refers to anything that is set apart for God's purposes. Holy Week is holy precisely because it is time that is set apart for us to focus on how we are spiritually renewed through the suffering, death, and Resurrection of Jesus. Most of us are used to recalling and celebrating the events of Holy Week through our attendance at special church services which sadly cannot take place this year.

Although physically gathering for worship is cancelled, Holy Week isn't! and we hope you will find the resources on our Holy Week Worship page a useful way for making your personal journey through the events of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday to the joy of the resurrection on Easter Day.

Don't forget to check out our new Children's Resources page — it's full of exciting material aimed at the 'young at heart' of all ages, with activities for Palm Sunday and Holy Week....
