A message from Alison 04/04/20


Dear Friends

We enter the most important week of the church’s year in the midst of a crisis unlike anything we have known. I’m sure, like me, you have been heartened by the acts of kindness shown by friends, neighbours and strangers. Never-the-less, this will be another difficult week.

I wonder, though, whether this enables us to appreciate the events of Holy Week in a special way. Those events took place when Jerusalem was in a state of heightened tension: the Roman authorities were alarmed by the huge following Jesus was building up; the religious leaders were alarmed at the thought of the Romans taking away the freedoms to worship they had managed to negotiate; Jesus’ followers were scared by his talk of death…

So alongside the new routines you are working out, I invite you to share in the story of God’s love, shown so clearly in Jesus’ final week.

Hopefully you have found the ‘Adel Parish Church’ Facebook page. Since we cannot meet in church – there will be services each day on that page. They will be played as a ‘watch party’ at the times advertised, but then will stay available on the page.

Palm Sunday 10am Parish Eucharist with Passion dramatized by Adel Players

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 7pm Compline with a short reflection on the day’s reading.

Maundy Thursday 7pm Parish Eucharist with ‘stripping of the altar’ and watch

Good Friday 10am Children’s service of stories and songs

2pm Meditations on Holy week from the characters around Jesus – provided by church members young and not so young. Followed by veneration of the cross. (Join us for all or part!)

Easter Sunday 10am Parish Eucharist

And I pray that in these strange times you will know the gift of hope amidst darkness offered by the joy of Easter Sunday and Jesus’ resurrection.

With love and prayers
