Back in church for Maundy Thursday
Our Maundy Thursday commemoration of the Last Supper was made extra special by being in our newly reopened church. Rev Les Whitfield led the service and performed the traditional act of washing the feet of two of the congregation (Rev Tim Thompson and Ann Kennedy). Nicholas Bennett provided musical leadership, including singing psalm verses (with perfect timing) during the Stripping of the Sanctuary, which left the high altar stark and bare. The service ended, as is traditional, in the silent departure of the congregation.
