Holy Week and Easter at St Michael and All Angels, Houghton-le-Spring

Journey with Jesus and the disciples to the cross and beyond

Holy Week gives us an opportunity each year to journey with Jesus and the disciples to the cross. If you only come along to Palm Sunday and then Easter Sunday you will totally miss the richness of this profoundly spiritual pilgrimage. As we journey, we will want to take in the sights, smells and sounds of first century Palestine. We will be helped to enter into the mystery of Christ’s passion by focusing on the senses in our services through the week at which the Reverend Bryony Taylor will be our preacher:
