We welcome you to join us during Holy Week.
Holy Week begins on Palm Sunday, 28th March, when Jesus’ entry into the city of Jerusalem was joyful and triumphant.(Matthew 21- 7:10)
And it ends on Easter Sunday, 4th April, when we celebrate Jesus resurrecting from the tomb to new life.
“We can all find much Joy, Hope and New Life with Jesus Christ.”
From Monday 29th of March through to Saturday 3rd April, why not come together as a family and take part in our “St Augustine’s Church Easter Treasure Hunt”.
Pictures that show signs of Spring and Easter will be displayed in homes around the Parish/ community and each picture will relate to a letter.
Find all the pictures and letters to spell out the mystery sentence.
You can download the information and a map of our Easter trail here:
When you have found all the pictures, have cracked the code and discovered the mystery sentence, walk to our Church, lay a decorated stone of your choice already prepared at the foot of the cross, maybe you would like to say a prayer together? before going to;
The Vicarage, St Augustine’s Way, North Springfield, Chelmsford CM1 6GX to claim your prize!
We hope you have a lot of fun along the way and maybe you will find other signs of Spring whilst you journey through the trail??
(? Maybe send us a photo of you completing the trail or of any signs of Spring and Easter you find on your journey, send them to our website or Facebook page, we would love to see them.)
Also you can download a Children’s Easter activity pack to do at home:
Then join us, in Church on Easter Sunday at 10.45am to celebrate as a community.
Our Sunday school will be doing fun activities including an Easter egg hunt and exploring our Easter trail before joining the rest of the church Family for the end of worship.
*Please be advised that all activities have been risk assessed and due to ongoing Covid 19 guidance there will be restrictions in place for certain activities. Please see the signs and information posters at Church and more information can be found on our website and Facebook page.
