After School Church Experience Easter, Wednesday 3rd April 2019

After refreshments in the porch, Jesus (played by Iain) led the children and adults into church, where they heard different parts of the Easter story as they went along.

1035 (& 1043) – Palm Sunday, the road to Jerusalem.  Rachel told the story and encouraged us to think about our hopes and dreams as we held palm leaves, then we laid them on the road before the cross.

1037 – The choir vestry became the upper room, laid out ready for Jesus’ last supper with his disciples.  Bec asked what sort of things we had that reminded us of something special and we heard how Jesus told his disciples to be reminded of him, then bread was shared among us.

1039 (&1045)– In the peace of the Lady Chapel we found the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus felt quite alone when his disciples fell asleep.  The children made play dough shapes to remind them of times when they felt alone or scared and these were left in the garden.

1041, 1042/1046 – Revd. Andy told the crucifixion and resurrection stories as part of our worship service, which included songs and prayers.

The children were given home-made cakes and Easter eggs to take home.


Good Friday service of Reflections on the Cross.  

1048: The Garden of Gethsemane: candles were lit to acknowledge the love Christ has for us.  These were later extinguished as a sign of the world abandoning Jesus and our love waning in weaknesses

1051: The Courtyard- the trial and mocking of Jesus and Peter’s denial: love forgotten.  A tablet representing our fears was placed in the water, where it dissolved away.

1052: The temple curtain

1053: the temple curtain torn in two – love unites God and humanity

1054: Broken bread and wine outpoured

1057: stones, representing us, were left at the closed tomb with a prayer that the world will come to know Jesus’ love

1058: Red ribbons were tied to the cross as a sign of sins forgiven.
