We look forward to seeing you for our Holy Week and Easter Services at St John the Baptist, Clowne and St James the Greater, Barlborough. Come with us on the most amazing journey:

Palm Sunday 9.15am Barlborough, 11am Clowne

A Eucharist at which the palm crosses are blessed and we hear the story of Jesus’ Passion (journey to the cross).

Maundy Thursday 7pm Eucharist, Barlborough

The Eucharist where we remember Jesus’ last supper with his disciples and he washed their feet. After the service is a time of silent prayer until 10pm when we will say Compline (Night Prayer) in the Lady Chapel.

Good Friday

12noon Stations of the Cross, Clowne – a simple service meditating on Jesus’ journey to Calvary

2.30pm The Cross of Christ music & readings, Barlborough – a service of music and readings meditating on the cross with St James Choir

Holy Saturday 8.30pm Easter Vigil & Fire, Clowne

An exciting service at which the new Paschal Candle is lit from the Easter fire, the first song of Easter is sung (the exsultet) and we hear readings starting from the Old Testament and going up to the Resurrection.

Easter Day – the greatest celebration in the church calendar!
