You are invited to journey with us through Holy Week, when we recall the story of Jesus’ passion, death, and resurrection. The greatest story of hope in the face of suffering.

Palm Sunday

24th March, 11am

At Venerable Bede, West Road NE4 8AP

We remember Christ’s triumphant arrival into Jerusalem with a procession outside the church bearing palm crosses and branches and singing. There is then a dramatic reading of the passion story and Holy Communion.


Maundy Thursday

28th March, 7.30pm

At St Margaret's Scostswood, NE15 6AR

We recall how Jesus shared his last meal with friends before he was betrayed with washing of feet and the stripping of decoration from the church. After the service the church remains open for the ‘watch’ until midnight for silent prayer.


Good Friday

29th March

1pm Stations of the Cross  /  2pm Liturgy of Good Friday

at St James’ Benwell, NE15 6RS

At 1pm, with Stations of the Cross we meditate on images of Jesus‘ final journey.

At 2pm, in the main Good Friday service, we gather at the foot of the cross to remember that Jesus suffered and died for us.


The Easter Vigil

Sat 30th March, 7.30pm

at St John’s Benwell Village, NE15 6NW

The climax of Holy Week and the most important celebration of the Christian calendar. A service full of symbolism with light, music, and water, we rejoice in Christ’s bursting from the tomb, bringing us all hope of new life.


Easter Morning

Sun 31st March

9.30am at St John's, NE15 6NW
