Maundy Thursday meditation

One family in Christ...for all the family: Loving, Serving, Growing

Meditations for Holy Week

Maundy Thursday is the day when we remember Jesus sharing the Last Supper with his disciples before his death. At the Last Supper, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet. Some churches recreate this act of service at special services and events. This is not only an important reminder of the nature of Jesus, who we serve, but also the kind of service we are meant to demonstrate for in our love for one another.

Watch this short film to explore more of what happened on Maundy Thursday:

A Prayer for Today
True and humble king,
hailed by the crowd as Messiah:
grant us the faith to know you and love you,
that we may be found beside you
on the way of the cross,
which is the path of glory.
Amen.

Celebrating ‘Maundy Thursday’ in Eggbuckland & Estover

We are joining with Christ Church, Estover to have a passover-style meal (similar in many ways to the Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples). All are welcome to this. It will be at Christ Church, Estover at 6pm.

This will be followed at 8.30pm by a short informal Celtic-style communion service in the chapel at Christ Church as we ‘keep watch’ briefly in prayer with the disciples.

Prepare for EasterPilgrim
All over the world, every day, Christians pray the Lord’s Prayer. The words are powerful. The prayer reshapes our lives in sorrow and in joy. The whole of the Christian gospel is here. Pilgrim Journeys invites you to spend 40 days reflecting on more of what this means.

If you have the LentPilgrim app installed it will automatically update to EasterPilgrim or you can manually update in the app store. The first EasterPilgrim reflection will be emailed to your inbox on Easter Day, Sunday 21 April 2019.
