Collect a leaflet from St Helen’s Church and make your way to St Peter’s Church, Gustard Wood using the Reflective Prayer Walk. The leaflet has prayers, readings and suggestions for reflection on the way. You may like to carry your palm cross. For children and families, there is an Easter Activity Trail full of stuff to do. Available now in the back pew of St Helen’s Church or print your own copy here:

Feeling crafty? Sketch and paint a stone with your Easter-inspired imagethen hide it in the village forsomeone to find. Before you hide it, why not post a photo on Facebook(the church, school or Network page) Or you could take it with you on your Easter walk to St Peter’s Church to lay it down at the foot of the cross. Suitable for all ages – for full instructions, click here.
Pop into St Helen’s Church to collect an Easter Egg to give away to a neighbour. Easter is the perfect time to connect or re-connect. We’ve seen the strength of our community over the past year. Say ‘thank you’ or show you care with an Easter gift. Spread the good news of Easter! There are gift tags and cards in the basket – please help yourself. Or you may prefer to share your homebaked goodies?

The Easter garden remembers how Jesus died on the cross on Good Friday, crucified between two thieves. Three days later, Jesus’ friends found the stone was rolled away from the tomb and the tomb was empty. Jesus was alive – he had risen from the dead!

  • Three crosses will be added during our 10am Family Easter Zoom Service on Good Friday. For Zoom link, email
  • At our 10am Outdoor Family Easter Communion on Easter Sunday, you can see the stone rolled away!

Please help us decorate our garden – bring your small flowers or bulbs from your garden and plant them in the turf or pick some tiny flowers and put them in a jar of water.

The latest change in rules from the Government and Church of England means congregational singing at Outdoor Services is now permitted.  Join us, a together once again we lift our voices to heaven on Easter Day at our two outdoor services!
