Third Sunday of Easter

Third Sunday of Easter

April 18th 2021Empty_Cross

 Christ is risen! He is risen indeed!    Alleluia.


This Sunday we continue with two simple Holy Communion Services at 9:00am & 10:00am. The 10:00am Service will also be live-streamed to both Facebook and YouTube.  

If you are not comfortable with online technology you can also phone and listen to the service live on 01234 634035.  Last month our YouTube channel had a total of 212 views with 735 minutes watched. If you haven’t done so please subscribe. 

As we are still not able to socialize in person after worship there will be a Zoom gathering to natter with coffee.  

Please do read the attached ‘Reach Out’ as this provides all the notices for the coming week as well as some dates for your diary… yes there are some events to look forward to!

 Despite continued concerns over how and where we can gather safely,  I’m pleased to say that we now have four professional theatre companies coming to perform six plays at Elstow Abbey over the summer. Details of ticketing will be available soon.  But here are the advance details:

  • Shakespeare in the Ruins – ‘The Tempest’ – Friday 28th May
  • Shakespeare in the Ruins – ‘Romeo & Juliet’ – Wednesday 2nd June
  • Shakespeare in the Ruins – ‘All’s well that ends well’ –  Friday 16th July,
  • Shakespeare in the Ruins – ‘A Midsummers Night Dream’ – Thursday 22nd July
  • ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit & Benjamin Bunny’ – Monday 30th August
