Journeying through the meaning of Easter together

JOURNEYING THROUGH THE MEANING OF EASTER TOGETHERWhat comes immediately to mind when you think about Easter? Chocolate Eggs, Fluffy Chicks, adorable bunnies, or the start of Spring? For many of us it means time off from work, spending more time with family and friends or maybe heading down to the beach for that first swim of the year.

But for the billions of Christians around the world it’s a time of great sorrow and great joy as they remember the Easter of 2000 years ago and the events in Jerusalem which led to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Here in the Algarve the churches are preparing to welcome their regular Congregations plus, of course all the visitors that arrive at this time of year, who in spite of being on vacation still want to treat Easter as a time of special significance.

Christ The King Anglican Church in Almancil have planned a Holy Week Schedule that will lead their Congregation through Palm Sunday and the arrival of Christ in Jerusalem to his glorious resurrection 7 days later. Traditional services are to be held in “The Church in the Park” Jardim das Comunidades, Almancil on Palm Sunday (24th March), Good Friday (29th March) and Easter Sunday (31st March) , at 10:30am. For those who cannot travel to Almancil these services are also live on the ZOOM platform, just contact Ann on 932 841 943 for details on how to join.

In addition this year Services are planned in “A Vida Plena”, Rua António Cabreira 15A,TAVIRA - starting on Good Friday with the Stations of the Cross in words and music at 10:30am and an Easter Sunday Service also at 10:30am.

Something special for Easter 2024 is a Night Watch Vigil on ZOOM for the night of Maundy Thursday 28th March from 19:00 to 07:00 on Friday morning. During this timeparticipants are being invited to allocate one hour to join with others for a quiet time ofprayer, reflection, and meditation. “We are inviting everyone to commit to spending some time during the night to ( in Jesus’ own words) – keep watch for one hour as we prepare ourselves for the world-shattering events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.This Night Watch will be broadcast live on the ZOOM platform so that many more people will be able join us and feel part of the unfolding events.
