Holy Week & Easter at St Peter's on Willis


In addition to our Regular Services, please see our Holy Week & Easter service times below. Times in bold will be livestreamed from our Facebook page.

Sunday 2 April - Palm Sunday 8am &10am

All are welcome to celebrate this day with us as we remember the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem.

Thursday 6 April - Maundy Thursday: Footwashing Service 7:30pm

On the Thursday before Easter, we celebrate the Last Supper, the day when Jesus gathered his disciples in the upper room and washed their feet. This is a service when we embrace humility, remembering that God called us to serve and be served by others. You don't have to wash anyone's feet nor do you have to have your feet washed. At the end of the service, we strip the altar, removing all adornments, signifying the humiliation Jesus underwent, humbling himself before God and all of humanity.

Friday 7 April - Good Friday: Way of the Cross 10am

We gather together to walk through some of the 14 Stations of the Cross in the church, praying at each station with a little reflection on what each station signifies for us today. This service is usually about an hour.

Friday 7 April - Good Friday: Liturgy for the Burial of Jesus 4pm

This is an emotional service, where we gather to remember the death and burial of Jesus, mourning him and wrapping the cross as a symbol of his body.

Saturday 8 April - Holy Saturday: Prayers at the Tomb  9:30-9:50am

Saturday 8 April - Holy Saturday: Great Easter Vigil 9pm

We gather on the night of Holy Saturday for the Great Easter Vigil, celebrating with fire and water, the new paschal flame and renewal of our baptismal covenant. Join us for a dramatic, mystical, and mysterious service that culminates in the great shout of praise at our first Easter Eucharist.

Sunday 9 April - Easter Sunday: 8am & 10am

Celebrate Christ the Risen One with us. Services of joy, thanksgiving, and wonder…. and at 10am with choral and orchestral fanfare!
