Holy Week and Easter 2020

This year, due to the pandemic and the current guidance from the Church of England, we are unable to join together and observe, in the usual manner, the Passion of Our Lord and the Easter Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday). At this difficult time, however, the message of Easter is more important to us than ever.

At St Anselm’s, we are fortunate to have been able to pre-record services for Holy Week, which will be offered online. Using these resources, we, as a community, can continue to worship together even as we are separated, and welcome the Easter light into our own lives.

While watching a service online cannot recreate the experience of the Sacrament in person, under the current circumstances it provides a way for us to continue to develop and strengthen our faith. The videos for Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday will have subtitled text to enable you to join in from home if you wish to do so.

These videos will all be published onto our YouTube channel and released on the normal Holy Week schedule. We will also update this page with links to the videos at the following times:
