8AM & 930AM 30 MARCH GOOD FRIDAY On Friday you can join us from 8-9am or from 930-12am or for both services as we remember the crucifixion. Our 8am service will follow the liturgy of the nails of the cross.   You can click through to read the liturgy here. At our 930am service we will remember the seven words of Jesus on the cross: 1 - Luke 22:34 - Father forgive them    Gilbert Khoza 2 - Luke 23:43 - Today you will be with me in paradise    Edmond Deane 3 - John 19:26-27 - Women here is your son.  Here is your mother    Trevor Ruthenberg 4 - Matthew 27:46 - My God, my God, why have you forsaken me    Iain Uys 5 - John 19:28 - I thirst    Isaac Rubaiya 6 - John 19:30 - It is finished    Mbulelo Bikwani 7 - Luke 23:46 - Father, into your hands I commend my spirit    Rev Angus Kelly Each reflection will be about 7 minutes long, followed by a worship song or hymn and a time of silence for prayer.

Take off Your Shoes - Tenebrae

When Moses spotted a burning bush in the wilderness the first thing God said to him: “Come no closer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place on which you are standing is holy ground.” - Exodus 3:5 I wonder if God knew that Moses might get scared and run away.  Taking off your shoes slows you down. If you're in town for the Easter Weekend I hope you will join us in worship.  Our service starts this evening (Thursday 7pm) and ends on Sunday morning, if you are away this weekend, or can't make it to some of the services; read through the following and join us 'in spirit'. 7PM THURSDAY 29 MARCH  TENEBRAE Take off your Shoes Reading  John 13:1-20 Our first act will be to come to church and take off our shoes. It slows you down. We will wash feet. Or you can wash your hands. Or you can sit and pray. Remember how Jesus washes us taking away our sins.  Serving us with love and calling us to serve with love. Take,
