Palm Sunday

Prior to this, all those who are able and would like to, will meet at Hickling Village Hall at 9.45am for the procession to church.

Everyone is very welcome to join us.  If anyone has fronds of Box, Yew, Willow or Olive, these are recognised substitutes for palms in our colder climate.  We hope to be lead by a donkey and distribute Palm Crosses to all we meet.  There will be refreshments for all after the service.

Holy Week

The week after Palm Sunday is Holy Week and below are the events held in our three churches.  The reflections are intended to last no more than half an hour and give space for quiet meditation.  Maundy Thursday Holy Communion will be followed by the stripping of the altar.

everyone is welcome to attend any, some or all of these events.
