Christmas, Easter and other church festivals
We offer a range of services across The Fosse Group at Advent and Christmas, at Holy Week and Easter. In addition, there are certain other occasions during the church year where there is a special service in one or more of our churches.
During Advent each of the five churches hosts a carol service combining both Advent and Christmas carols.
Each year Midnight Mass is celebrated in one of our five churches; and then on Christmas morning there is a special celebration of the Eucharist in two of our churches.
Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday with the Procession of Palms and a Group Palm Sunday Eucharist. On each of the following days in Holy Week there is a different service in one of our churches including the Eucharist with the Washing of Feet, the Stripping of the altars and Vigil on Maundy Thursday; the Good Friday Liturgy; the Service of Vigil and Light on Easter Eve and a special celebration of the Eucharist on Easter morning in two of our churches.
At other times in the year we mark Plough Sunday (early January at St Wilfrid’s, Screveton); Ascension Day (with an evening Group Eucharist); East Bridgford Feast Sunday (with a special service Evensong at St Peter’s in late June/early July); Harvest Festival (in each of our five churches); Remembrance Sunday (at the War Memorial at St Peter’s, East Bridgford; and at one of: St Wilfrid’s, Screveton, St Mary’s, Car Colston or St Augustine’s, Flintham, as well as the Airmen’s Memorial at Screveton); All Souls’ Day (with a Group service at St Peter’s, East Bridgford, in loving memory of departed loved ones).
