22 March 2018

 

Dear West View family

 

This Sunday, we enter the most holy and important week in the Christian year. Holy Week 2018 is going to be a powerful encounter with the risen Christ. I commend each of these events to you:

Monday 26th March 7pm: Rev Pete Grassouw will be the guest preacher at our Holy Monday Service. Children will join parents for the start of the service, before moving off to Godly Play.

Tuesday 27th March 7pm: Worship Encounter. Come and soak in God’s presence as you worship Him. The service will include Holy Communion. Kids are welcome to join in

Wednesday 28th March 6pm: Come along with your picnic blankets and baskets for a family picnic in the sanctuary. Our Youth will be presenting a drama at this all-age event.

Thursday 29th March 7pm: Tenebrae (Service of Shadows). This powerful service is a time to reflect deeply on God’s love for you, shown in Jesus. Children will join parents for the start of the service, before moving off to Godly Play.

 

 

EASTER WEEKEND

Please note that this year, we’re holding 2 Good Friday Services – 7h30 and 9h00. I’ll be sharing with you a dramatic monologue called “The Gospel in Chairs”.  There will be a children’s programme in the Luke Hall during the 9h00 service. The offering at this service will support the training up of ministers in our denomination. Please support this investment in the future leadership of our church.

Friday afternoon’s Remembrance Service, hosted by the Pastoral Care cluster, is at 5pm

Our Sunrise service is at Mnandi Methodist Church, Short Rd, at 6am

Easter Communion Services at West View at 7h45 and 9h45. These services will include a Children’s address.

Our 6pm service is a movie night – we’ll be watching the movie Risen, which tells the powerful story of the crucifixion through the eyes of a Roman soldier. The film is rated PG13 (violence). You can watch the trailer here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A_wKDajeohg.
