“Behold, I am making all things new.”

Christ Church is a social congregation – when we’re not dealing with a global pandemic, we like to eat and play as well as pray together. Our ‘togetherness” has increased online, though – Sign up here to receive our weekly E-news.
SEE OUR HOLY WEEK LINE-UP HERE!
MAUNDY THURSDAY April 14, 6 pm Supper and Service at Christ Church Wayside
We will gather in person for one of the most moving services of Holy Week: supper and worship on Maundy Thursday. The worship flows out of the meal as we gather at table to hear the stories of Jesus’ last supper – our first eucharist. We end by processing into the church in silence for the stripping of the altar, ready for the solemnity of Good Friday. Please register here so we can plan food and set-up.

THE GREAT VIGIL OF EASTER
April 16, 8 pm, La Plata & online
It’s not a vigil – it’s joyful worship that takes us to the brink of the Easter moment – and then zings us across it with lights and bells and those first Alleluias. We start outside with the New Fire, from which we light the Easter Candle. Processing inside, we sit in candlelight, hearing some of the great parts in our Sacred Story. We renew our baptismal vows and tiptoe to the empty tomb… and what will we find? Come and see! Bring bells!
EASTER SUNDAY! April 17, 11 am
Easter Sunday dawns and the Alleluias flow. Join your church family to celebrate the Feast of the Resurrection with joyful hymns and proclamation of the great Good News of freedom in Christ. And keep an eye out for newcomers – this is our best welcoming Sunday. After the service, we will enjoy an Easter Egg Hunt open to all – please invite neighborhood families.
