Churches Together Easter Events 2022
Each Easter, the Churches of Weston-super-Mare and District come together to take part in joint acts of worship and witness. These are in addition to numerous individual church services and events taking place across the 39 local Churches during this sacred festival.
Across Easter Weekend we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Good Friday marks the crucifixion of Jesus, and is a time for quiet contemplation as we reflect on the ultimate price that He paid to redeem our sins. Easter Sunday is a triumphant celebration of the resurrection of Jesus and the new life that we can all experience as we come to faith in him.
This year, there will be two inter-denominational events on Good Friday and a single sunrise service on Easter Sunday led by local church leaders and worship teams.
Good Friday Walk of Witness - Town Centre
We would welcome local people to join our united Easter Walk of Witness on Good Friday 15th April 2022. Believers from many of the Weston-super-Mare and District Churches will be taking part in this opportunity to share the message of Hope that Easter brings.
We will gather just before 12 noon outside Emmanuel Church, Oxford Street, Weston-super-Mare.
The Route - Those gathered will quietly process behind a cross down Oxford Street towards the seafront. We shall cross to the opposite (north side) Oxford Street pavement at Nandos, continuing walking towards the seafront. We will cross over Marine Parade and then turn right, walking along the promenade to the Grand Pier. We will then turn right down Regent Street and left along the High Street to the Italian Gardens.
We arrive at the Italian Gardens in time for an act of worship for Good Friday from about 12.30pm. The service will be led by local church leaders with worship led by local singers and musicians.
If it is raining very badly, we will forego the walk and meet for the act of worship at Emmanuel Church at 12 noon.
Worle Churches Joint Service - Worle High Street
The Worle and outlying churches will be holding individual services before processing to a joint Good Friday service of witness outside the Co-Op at Worle High Street at 11.15am.
Easter Sunday Sunrise Service
We highly recommend setting your alarm clock so that you are able to join us for the Easter Sunday Sunrise Service which is to be held on Sunday 17th April 2022, at 6.30am, on the Sea Front opposite Carlton Street. The service will be led by Rev Craig Philbrick, the newly install vicar of St Paul's Church, Walliscote Road, Weston. This joyful gathering will be followed by bacon rolls (and a non-meat alternative) on the seafront, kindly provided by the Salvation Army fellowship.
We will be giving out bacon rolls to passers-by as we share the good news of Easter!
You are welcome to join us!
