The Rev'd Canon Sarah Plowman's Maundy Thursday 2022 message

“The Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services are not separate events, but are one liturgy, broken in the middle by a long night where solitary contemplation and prayer are the vehicles for each of us to wrestle with the violence and injustice of Jesus’ trial and punishment. There are some things that are only understood from within our own skin, knowing our own injustices and our own response to the violence we see in the world,” says The Rev’d Canon Sarah Plowman

Bishop Jeremy Greaves' Good Friday 2022 message

“A great deal of ink, and even blood, has been spilled trying to make sense of the cross and why God might let an innocent man die in such a horrific way…It seems to me that rather than debate the merits or otherwise of one theory over another, it is better on Good Friday to simply hear the story… to hear the story of Good Friday and let it speak into our life here and now,” says Bishop Jeremy Greaves
