Restarting our congregational worship and services for Holy Week and Easter
We have decided (subject to the guidance from the government and diocese remaining the same) that we will restart our usual pattern of services from All Saints, St Nicholas and St Thomas from Sunday 18th April. We will continue to livestream our services from all three churches on at www.facebook.com/groups/HRR.Churches and then services will be uploaded, as now onto our website here at www.hrr-churches.org.uk/prayer-and-reflection and onto YouTube at www.bit.ly/RJsYouTube.
Morning and Night Prayer will continue to be livestreamed on www.facebook.com/groups/HRR.Churches on Weekdays at 8:00am and 8:00pm. This will be replaced by our Lent Group on Thursdays (7:45pm) until Maundy Thursday when we will have our Eucharist (7:30pm) and on Good Friday we will have our Reflection on Jesus’ Passion between 2pm and 3pm.
On both Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday as well as our Livestreamed Holy Communion at 10:00 there will be an outdoor service at 9:00am. This will be at St Nicholas Rawreth on Palm Sunday and at Rettendon on Easter Sunday. This service will last for about 30 minutes.

(If you downloaded and printed the previous version of Compline for Ordinary Time the only change is the addition of the hymn Before the Ending of the Day)
