Remembrance Sunday

Palm Sunday

Sunday 24th March 0900

Palm Sunday marks the start of Holy Week; the day when Jesus entered triumphantly into Jerusalem on a donkey to the shouts of “Hosanna” from the crowds. Less than a week later he had been branded a criminal, crucified and raised from the dead. 

Palm Sunday at St John’s begins with Parish Communion at the earlier time of 0900. After that service we join with members of the Methodist and Roman Catholic churches to process up the High Street, led by Zephyr the donkey. En route, we shall be singing Palm Sunday hymns and hear the reading of the Passion Narrative in the version according to St Mark.
