St Martin-in-the-Fields: Palm Sunday, Holy Week & Easter Day

On Palm Sunday at 5.00pm in St Martin-in-the-Fields I will be leading From Creation to Salvation, a powerful service of readings and music as we enter into Holy Week, telling the story of salvation, with the Choir of St Martin-in-the-Fields.

At the beginning of Holy Week I will be leading Alternative Stations of the Cross, a service for Holy Week at St Martin-in-the-Fields, at 6.00pm on Monday 26 March in the Dick Sheppard Chapel. For this service I will use meditations and images from ‘Mark of the Cross’, my collaboration with Henry Shelton, as well as showing the Stations of the Cross created by Valerie Dean. These images by commission4mission artists are available for download via 'Mark of the Cross' features 20 poetic meditations on Christ’s journey to the cross and reactions to his resurrection and ascension (images by Henry Shelton and words by myself). 'Stations of the Cross' by Valerie Dean are available as a powerpoint presentationand as a pdf file. Her 'Stations of the Cross' have a very clear and intense focus on details which are evocative of the whole. Individual images, pdfs and powerpoints for these collections are all available for download from The Worship Cloud.
