Holy Week and Easter

Easter Trail: Walk the story of Holy Week and Easter: an Easter Trail has been set out in the village starting at our church. At each point on the trail you will find a big board with an artwork and a summary of the events leading up to Jesus’ death and resurrection. For children there is a free bag to collect at the Lych Gate with instructions and various items needed on the trail. For adults there is a laminated prayer sheet in the box along with a small palm cross. Please sanitise your hands before opening the box. The trail will be up from Saturday 27th of March until Sunday 11th April. You can do it in instalments if it is too far to do in one go. The adult sheet can also be accessed here and printed

Mark’s Gospel Readings: the entire gospel of Mark has been read by members of Freeland, St Mary’s and St Machar’s Ranfurly churches. These will be posted in daily instalments during Holy Week on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ0gpjwTSdIJs59_WyEWdKw starting on Palm Sunday and finishing on Easter Sunday. There are 2 or 3 chapters read at a time in various locations around the village. It is a great way to hear the grand sweep of Mark’s narrative and follow Jesus’ story right through.

Services: From Palm Sunday 27th March we will recommence in person services. Places need to be pre-booked and are limited due to social distancing. You are asked to sanitise your hands as you enter the church and wear a mask throughout the service. You will be directed to a seat by a steward – this may not be your usual spot! Services are shorter than normal and we sadly are still not allowed to sing. However, we have found it is nonetheless uplifting to be able to gather in this way and you are most welcome to join us. To book a place please contact our session clerk Dennis Taylor sessionclerk@stmacharsranfurlychurch.org.uk or by calling on 07484 280104.
