St Mary's Church, Marshalswick

St Mary's is an Open Church - Open to God, Open to You

Friday 2 April  2021 - GOOD FRIDAY

Good Friday Family Worship and Activities 11.00 am

The activities included working on the Easter Garden in Peppercorn Place and making another Easter garden for inside the Church.  This time last year there was no access to church so an Easter garden was made in Peppercorn Place. This was so much appreciated that Peppercorn Place is once again hosting it.  Please do make time to go and have a look at the Easter Garden - though remember to social distance!

Reflections for Good Friday

This is one occasion at a Major Church Festival where one of our member churches organizes a Service on behalf of us all.    This year we are working with Churches Together in Marshalswick and the Cathedral Abbey to bring a very special service of waiting, which for health reasons, will be only available online.  There will be no Cross Procession this year.
