Leavetaking of Pascha & Ascension Day: Wednesday 24th May

Come and celebrate with us on Wednesday 24th May!

At 7 pm we will sing the Paschal Hours for the last time this year to mark the Leavetaking of Pascha: the Epitaphios / Plaschanitsa will be returned to its place at the back of the church, accompanied by the final singing of the Paschal Troparion.

At around 7.30 pm we will begin the Vigil, which will conclude with the Divine Liturgy of the Ascension.

As well as being a Feast of the Lord, the Ascension is the ‘Feast of Title’ of our church – so a very important day in our calendar. Come and celebrate the Feast!

Memory Eternal! Sarah Westwood

It is with great sadness that we announce the death this morning, 29th March 2023, of our dear sister in Christ, Sarah.

Sarah had been ill for some months at home, but she had a fall yesterday, and was taken into hospital, where she died. She had borne her increasing frailty with great courage, and with deep trust in God.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband, Joseph, and with all their family at this sad time.

Details of Sarah’s funeral will be announced as soon as arrangements are finalised.

May her memory be eternal!
