Welcome to our service of Tenebrae on Wednesday of Holy Week.
Tenebrae means ‘darkness’ or ‘shadows’ in Latin, and if we were physically together in the church building this evening, tonight’s service would get progressively darker, with candles blown out after every Gospel reading. Tonight is about hearing the story of Jesus’s arrest and crucifixion afresh.
We’ll tell the story through a combination of scripture, poetry and music, with scripture readings from Philip Brook and Dr Christine Checinska, and poetry readings from Natalie Burwell, Carmen Correa, Jacintha Danaswamy, Revd Vanessa Conant and Cameron Conant.
You can listen to our pre-recorded service whenever is convenient for you by clicking here, or you can join us live at 7.30pm on our Facebook page as Revd Vanessa Conant takes us through the service.
