Good Friday: An hour at the Cross in St John’s in the Hall (3-4pm)

This is a quiet devotional service as we explore and reflect upon Jesus’s passion and what it has to teach us about ourselves and God’s generous faithful love.

Easter Morning Sunrise Service

Calling all you larks! We thought we would resurrect the ecumenical tradition of having a short sunrise service at the top of Dent on Easter Morning. As you may have seen on Facebook, we did have a practice run last year! It was a bit misty but very atmospheric. If folks would like to join me then I hope to set off at the bottom of Black How car park at 6:00 am. There’ll be a short service on top….do bring a flask of hot tea and coffee and I’ll bring the hot cross buns. If you can be in touch to let me know if you are intending to come that would help with the catering.

Easter Sunday Services

Join us for our Easter celebrations. We are holding an Easter Sunday Communion service at St John’s in the Hall at 9:15am and at St Michael’s Arlecdon at 11:15am

Crosslacon’s Posada

Mary and Joseph have set off from Nazareth on their way to Bethlehem. They have decided to take a quick detour around Crosslacon parish…I know…a bit off the beaten track! Why not see if you can plot their route. Each day on the Crosslacon Parish Facebook page a different photo will be uploaded showing Mary and Joseph at different locations across the parish. Why not download our Plot the Posada Sheet here and see if you can guess all of their locations. Then come along on the 24th December (Christmas Eve) and welcome Mary and Joseph as they arrive at the stable in our Christingle and Crib Service at 4pm
