Seeking and Sharing the Fullness of Life

Scroll down for video recordings of the most recent Holy Week liturgies liturgies. The schedule of SYCBaps worship and prayer online for Holy Week 2021 is as follows:

Palm Sunday, 28 March 2021
5:00pm The Palm/Passion Sunday Liturgy
Holy Week opens by placing us among the crowd who cheered Jesus’s arrival in Jerusalem and were soon caught up in the drama of his passion. The service includes a reading of the extended passion narrative as darkness overtakes us. We share bread and wine at the Lord’s Table, but in a briefer form than usual.

Monday – Wednesday
8:00am Matins (Morning prayer and share)
5:00pm Vespers (Early evening prayer and share)
This week Vespers was about 5mins longer than usual, because there are special additional Holy Week scripture readings
9:30pm Compline (Nighttime prayer and share)

Maundy Thursday, 1 April 2021
8:00am Matins (Morning prayer and share)
5:00pm The Maundy Thursday Liturgy
This is a major liturgy, the first part of the great three day liturgy. This one focuses on the story of Jesus’s last supper with his followers before his arrest and trial, and in particular on the story of the call to servanthood symbolised in foot washing. We share bread and wine at the Lord’s Table, but in a briefer form than usual.

5:00pm The Great Friday Liturgy
The second part of the great three day liturgy. This one focuses on the story of the cross, Jesus’s execution.
