Rector’s Weekly Update

The Beaminster Area Team
From the Hub update Friday 8th April 2022

There are many services around the Team during Holy Week and the full rota can be found in Team News or on our Services Page

You can even join in from the comfort of your own home for Compline at 8.30pm every evening, except Thursday, via Zoom. The link can be found on the website or email Jo for it. 

The best service of the year is 6am on Easter Day. We start outside, in the first light, to light the Easter fire and the Paschal candle. Then we will process into the dark church, bringing the new light of Christ with us. We listen to the Exultet, sing praises to God, and celebrate the first communion of Easter. We will serve coffee and pastries at the back of the church afterwards. Even if you aren’t a naturally early riser, I can assure you it is worth getting up for. 

If that isn’t tempting, then there are many other opportunities to worship during Holy Week and Easter. Also available for Holy Week on our website will be daily meditations for Holy Week. Hard copies will be available from Palm Sunday at the back of St Mary’s, Beaminster. 

Please note that the church office will close at 12.30pm on Thursday 14th April and will reopen on Tuesday 19th April. 

Online Worship at Home video services continue even though churches are open. The online community continues to be an important part of our church – such as Thursday Evening Prayers and our increasingly popular Gin Church. As usual each Sunday’s video service will be available on the day before. We hope you continue to enjoy our weekly Rev Chat video. And in person in Beaminster you can join us for Baby & Toddler Group on Monday mornings and our Walk In Wednesday social gathering on Wednesday mornings.
