bread-of-lifeMaundy Thursday (13th April)
6.00pm – 7.30pm  Upper Room Meal
We recall Jesus’ last supper with his friends with a simple ritual ‘agape’ – a shared meal, with words that recall his timeless actions and teaching about love. Please bring ‘Mediterranean’ food to share – a small amount of flatbread (pitta, tortilla, focaccia) and one or two accompaniments – olive oil to dip, olives, houmus, tahini, tabbouleh, feta, stuffed vine leaves, salad, cous cous, etc – and drinks.
Good Friday (14th April)
10.30am – 12.00pm  Stations of the Cross
This is our version of the ancient practice of remembering Jesus’ last journey in a walking meditation across Leith Links. It’s a shared event with our friends at the L’Arche Community. We start at the L’Arche house – The Skein, 18 Claremont Park (hot cross buns served in the back garden!) and slowly make our way across the Links, stopping to remember parts of the story and hear short reflections by members of our communities. The last two stations are at St James, where there will be a soup lunch for everyone.
Brian McGlynn7.00pm Gospel Singing Evening led by Brian McGlynn.
As well as our regular Stations of the Cross on the morning of Good Friday, this year we have an evening event, learning and singing magnificent Gospel songs of redemption and celebration chosen for Easter. Brian’s famous Gospel Singing sessions at Solas Festival are known to many, and one of two of the songs will hopefully find there way into our Easter Morning service (Brian is staying on for the weekend). Feel free to bring your own refreshments… you may be needing them!
