The Palm Sunday and Easter Story will be told in music,
hymns and readings in First Lisburn Presbyterian Church on
Sunday 16th March at 11.00am. The minister, the Rev John
Brackenridge will be assisted by the organist, choir,
orchestra, band, readers and voices in the what will prove
to be an excellent presentation setting the scene for Holy
Week and Easter.
There will be a short service held in the Upper Room of the
church on Monday 17th, Tuesday 18th and Wed 19th March at
7.00pm to 7.30pm allowing time for Easter reflections and on
Friday 21st at 7.00pm there will be a Service of
Contemplation in the Church.
A Passover Meal will be held in Thursday 20th March at
7.00pm. At the end of the meal, the communion of the Last
Supper will be shared at each table - parents are invited to
also share this part of the meal with their children as they
think appropriate. The meal comes with a Passover Liturgy,
yet it is very free and informal and has the feel of people
gathered in a home. It is meant to be enjoyed and is
designed to help us understand 'communion' and to enter into
the events of this night in our Holy Week journey.
There will be an Easter Sunrise Service in Lady Dixon
Park on Easter Sunday morning (23rd March) at 7.30pm
followed by a light breakfast in the church at 8.30pm and
morning worship in the church at 11.00pm.
