What is Maundy Thursday?
Maundy Thursday is the Thursday of Holy Week, one day before Good Friday (the Friday before Easter). Maundy Thursday is the name given to the day on which Jesus celebrated the Passover with His disciples, known as the Last Supper. Two important events are the focus of Maundy Thursday.

First, Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples and thereby instituted the Lord’s Supper, also called Communion (Luke 22:19-20). At Trinity we observe a Communion service on Maundy Thursday in memory of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. Second, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service, thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility (John 13:3-17). We observe a foot-washing ceremony on Maundy Thursday to commemorate Jesus’ washing the feet of the disciples.

The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another.

 

 

Our worship for Good Friday begins at 10:30.  All welcome.

Following the Service coffee & hot cross buns will be available.

Passion

The Passion Richmond is a town-centre performance featuring the dramatic biblical events leading to the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. It follows the tradition of Easter Passion Plays performed in many town centres in the UK and around the world since the Middle Ages. A large cast, with music and choirs will perform between 1pm and 2.30pm on Good Friday, 3 April, using the iconic setting of the Richmond Riverside, just off the town-centre shopping street. This is a free outdoor performance, directed by former BBC Head of Series Peter Cregeen. Local churches and community groups are joining together to bring this central event of the Christian faith into the heart of the Richmond community.
