Palm Sunday

We may have missed having a donkey this year but despite this disappointment 127 of us gathered for Worship at St Paul’s for our Mission Community Service to celebrate Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem as we look forward to Holy Week and Easter.

The Passion Gospel according to St Matthew was read in dramatic form with readers from across the Mission Community taking part.

The Choir sang Holy, Holy, Holy by Franz Schubert as an anthem as well as singing during communion and supporting the singing during the service including the words Orlando Gibbins setting:

Drop, drop, slow tears,
And bathe those beauteous feet,
Which brought from Heav’n
The news and Prince of Peace.

Cease not, wet tears,
His mercies to entreat;
To cry for vengeance:
Sin doth never cease.

In your deep floods
Drown all my faults and fears;
Nor let His eye see
Sin, but through my tears.
