Holy Week and Easter 2021

In line with current guidance, we are delighted to be able to be open this year to observe Holy Week and Easter in church together. Although there are some changes to our usual practice to ensure everyone’s safety, we will be able to share fully in the liturgies of the Easter Triduum (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and Holy Saturday). At this difficult time 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. We hope that this will be a relief to those who are unable to join us in church this year. 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.

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 as they are released.
