Maundy Thursday 1 April 2021
 
Dear EFP church folk,
 
I hope you've been enjoying the burst of wonderful warm weather this week. As one regular dog-walker I see greeted me this morning, ‘Your hat and gloves’ll be back out at the weekend’ - he wears shorts whatever the temperature!
 
Wonderfully we will have dry weather to sing outside both on Good Friday at the service’s end, and on Easter Day start and finish - if a bit chilly, particularly at Escot early Sunday morning!
 
On Easter Day, you are invited to gather in the churchyard for the start of the service if you are able. If you'd prefer or need to wait inside, please do so, however. At each church the service will begin with a hymn outside - hymn-sheets will be given out - and finish by returning outside. Please socially distance, and keep to 2-households/rule-of-6 as much as you can. It is an Easter celebration, though… 
 
In our Good Friday services, we will bring to the Cross the prayers of our communities emerging from the struggles of the past 12 pandemic months. In our Easter services, we offer our communities’ hopes for the next 12 months.
