On Sunday, Rev. Eliakim remembered Christ's triumphant entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday and urged us to allow Christ into our own lives. We pray that we follow that message this week, as we remember the events of Christ's arrest, trial, death... and rising to new life!
We look forward to seeing you at our services this week:
13 April MAUNDY THURSDAY, 6.30pm: Evening Service with Holy Communion, washing of hands and the stripping of the altar.
14 April GOOD FRIDAY 12 noon: Joint service at St. Paul and St. Silas, also with our sisters and brothers from Hampstead Baptist Church.
If you are able, please join us at St. George's at 11.30am as we walk up together to the service at St. Paul and St. Silas. We will be carrying the cross through our community as a witness to Christ's death for us on the cross.
15 April HOLY SATURDAY, 6pm: Dressing the Altar for Easter.
16 April EASTER SUNDAY, 10.30am: Family service to celebrate Christ's resurrection!
Please note that there is no Wednesday Lent group this week.
Happy Easter to you all!
Welcome to St. George's!
Spring is definitely here and Easter is approaching, but we still have a lot to think about in these last two weeks of Lent. On Sunday we heard the story of Lazarus from the Gospel of John. Lazarus had been dead for four days by the time his friend Jesus arrived, but Jesus called him out of the tomb alive.
In her message to us on Sunday, Adeola focused on the part of the story where Jesus commands the bystanders to unbind Lazarus from his grave clothes and move freely as a newly alive person. What is still binding us to death, and what is preventing us from moving freely in our new birth in Christ?
Please do join us for our Lent Bible study and prayer group at 6pm on Wednesdays. Otherwise, see you on Sunday (9th March) for our celebrations of Palm Sunday.
