Martin's exit music and hymns Easter Sunday
Here is Evie Dudley playing our exit music for 11th AprilEvie Dudley is a 6th form pupil at Aldridge School.She is playing Sarabande La Musette by J.S. Bach (1685-1750)He wrote it sometime between 1715 and 1720 at that exciting time just before our "new" church was being rebuilt. It would have originally been played on a harpsichord because the piano as we know it now had only just being experimented on and Bach probably did not hear one in his lifetime. Martin

Stations of the Cross for Good Friday
Alyson Rickus with help from Christopher has prepared this most special journey for us

The Stations of the Cross or the Way of the Cross, also known as the Way of Sorrows or the Via Crucis, refers to a series of images depicting Jesus Christ on the day of his crucifixion and accompanying prayers. The stations grew out of imitations of Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem which is believed to be the actual path Jesus walked to Mount Calvary. The objective of the stations is to help the Christian faithful to make a spiritual pilgrimage through contemplation of the Passion of Christ. It has become one of the most popular devotions and the stations can be found in many Western Christian churches,

A Church of England resource with a selection of hymns, reflections and prayers for those not on the internet.  The service is supported by the Church of England nationally as well as through the Connections group based at Holy Trinity Claygate in Surrey and the Christian charity Faith in Later Life. Although thousands of churches across the country are now running services and prayer groups online while public worship remains suspended, many people – especially older people – do not have access to the internet. The line also recognises the impact of social distancing restrictions and self-isolation measures on those suffering from loneliness.

All are welcome to join us for this online service marking the beginning of Lent, as we reflect on God's gift of repentance and the challenge and joy of discovering what happens when our shame meets with the promise of his grace.(People joining us for worship are invited to find a large stone or piece of rock which will be used as part of an act of penitence during the service.) To join in the service just click on the following link
