Holy Week & Easter at St Martin-in-the-Fields

This Sunday at St Martin-in-the-Fields we mark the beginning of Holy Week with a Palm Sunday procession, led by a donkey, with the Chalk Farm Salvation Army Band and the Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields. We meet at the steps behind Admiralty Arch near the British Council building where the procession begins at 9.45am. For those who are not joining the procession the service in church begins as usual at 10am, when we greet the arrival of the procession and together we experience a dramatised reading of the Passion Gospel led by members from the St Martin’s community.

Lent Oasis, Sunday 9 April, 2.00-4.00pm, George Richards and Austen Williams Rooms

Another ‘Oasis’ time of quiet scripture reflection, prayer and practical art. Art materials will be available for you to explore, play with colour and be creative through collage, painting, drawing or writing.
