Holy Week 2018
Living close to Alton Towers made me think how much like a roller-coaster Holy Week must have been for the Apostles. It starts with the rising to the heights of the entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday, the adulation of the crowds, followed by the hectic shaking as Jesus cleared the temple and taught. Followed by the lull of the last supper before plunging down through the trial of Jesus and hitting rock bottom with his Crucifixion. For them and us that was not the end of the ride, the end was being transported to the highest height with His Resurrection on Easter day, as we all shout He is Risen !!!!!!!
This Holy Week when it feels like your life is a never ending roller coaster remember that Jesus has ridden it before us and is with us right there in the front car through every rise and fall.
Have a Great Easter and please come along and join us at one of our services.
We are a fairly traditional Village Church but always open to new ways of reaching out through worship to our local communities and congregation. St Mary's mission is to make Jesus real in today’s life and part of this is to welcome our friends from the Indian Orthodox Church to worship with us. Our church, part of the Church of England, has a dedicated volunteer leadership team headed by the vicar. As well as giving support and guidance, St Mary's provides a sanctuary at the heart of Knutton.
"We want to discern what God is doing in His world and join in…serving our neighbours, community and wider world."
St Mary's is easily accessible with nearby carparks. The Church is in the centre of the Village of Knutton. Parking is available either on street or on the Community Centre Car Park across from the Church itself.
