In Loving Memory (memorial service for babies & children)

In Loving Memory 2017
In this year’s season of remembrance, a special service will be held to give space for the particular and special grief and mourning which is known by parents who have lost a child, whether through miscarriage, still-birth or in the early years of life.

The quiet, gentle service in the peaceful surroundings of St Michael’s enables everyone present to reflect on their loss and hopes for what might have been and bring God into the middle of all the emotions we feel.

As part of the service, all present will be given a chance to light a candle in memory of the child or children you lost.

The service has been timed for 4.00 p.m. in the afternoon in order to enable children to participate if they wish to do so. While parents may need to grieve the loss of a child, in many such circumstances older brothers and sisters may also need the opportunity too.

Everyone is very welcome.

Seder Meal – Maundy Thursday Service

DETAILS TO BE CONFIRM IN 2018

 

 

Our Seder Meal shall be taking place at St Lawrence, Mereworth and shall be led by Rev Pat Dickin. A Seder Meal takes its name and its cues from the Jewish meal of Passover. Using that meal as a guide, we will explore the way in which, on Maundy Thursday, Jesus gathered with his disciples to celebrate one final supper before his arrest and death. We’ll explore the different elements of the Seder and what they can tell us about Jesus’ intentions and the symbolism he chose to embrace.

Because this service involves a meal, it’s important to know who is coming so we can cater appropriately. Please contact Rev Pat via the St Lawrence’s website to register your attendance.

We hope to see you there.

 

Cluster Service: Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross are a 14-step devotional reflection that commemorates Jesus Christ’s last day of his natural life. The 14 devotions, or stations, focus on specific events of that last day, with a piece of art provided to guide our thoughts. At each station we recall and meditates on a specific event from Christ’s last day. Specific prayers are recited, then we move to the next station until all 14 are complete.

The Stations provide a different, interactive and reflective way to ponder the journey that took Christ to the cross and offer an opportunity early in Holy Week to consider afresh the journey that we too will take in the immediate days ahead.

Epiphany Cluster Service

The Rt Reverend Brian Castle shall be leading and preaching this special Cluster Service.
