Holy Week and Easter 2016


Didn't our Mystery Worshippers have a busy walk to the Cross this year! It all started with a mime of the Passion and Jesus' entry into Jerusalem being compared to a moon walk. Then on to a tenebrae where the church cat got more attention than the service. After a very friendly commemoration of the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday, it was off to a Good Friday service with painted t-shirts but no hot cross buns; a magical Holy Saturday vigil with lavender incense; and a "cheerfully sweet" Easter Sunday service (you'll find out why).

> Passion mime at Trinity Lutheran, Phoenix, USA
> One small step for Jesus at Sidmouth Methodist, UK
> Everyone friendly: Westminster Presbyterian, Phoenix, USA
> Where's the cat? St Paul's, Covent Garden, London

> Good Friday rags at St Mark’s, Harrogate, UK
