Duxford, Maundy Thursday
April 13 @ 8:00 pm
Solemn Eucharist with footwashing, stripping of the
Altar & Watch of Passion.
We remember Jesus’s final meal, the Last Supper, by breaking bread & sharing wine as he did. The ministers wash the feet of those who wish, as Jesus did for his friends, to show that God comes to human beings as one who serves.
As the service ends, we hear of Jesus’s arrest. The lights go out; the altar is stripped, leaving the church bare & unadorned. We leave in silence & darkness, full of sorrow. Some people will remain, taking turns to pray in the dark church until midnight.
