Vespers & All night vigil

Church Window Mask

Holy Saturday 30 March from 7.30pm till 6am

Pray, listen, wait, rest, and eat together

Come at 7.30pm for a meditative service (based on the ancient liturgy of Vespers) which will include a chance to offer a poem, some thoughts, a reading, to share with others. Please bring something to read or share if you would like to. A bring-and-share meal follows. We will also prepare bread together which will be baked overnight to use for the Dawn Eucharist.

At 10pm the ancient night prayer of Compline is said together. The doors are locked at 10.30pm for the all-night vigil. If you would like to take part, please bring a sleeping bag and sign up in advance.

The pattern normally is that each person volunteers for one hour to keep awake, so that no one has to stay awake all night if you don’t want to. Please register for the all-night vigil either in church on Sundays or by signing up below.
