St Raphael’s Congregation
Easter Pilgrimage 2020
This service is an Easter pilgrimage of the imagination around church – any church, but most likely your local church building, as together in words and music and action, we celebrate the new life in Christ that flows from his resurrection.
The service focuses around four ‘stations’: the Paschal Candle, the Easter garden, the Font, and the Altar, and has a reading and a hymn for each. As we are not able to visit church in person, some people might find it useful to focus on visual symbols representing each of these: a candle, some flowers, some water, some bread and wine, or a white linen cloth, for example. These could be real or images on your computer or in a book.
In the order of service there are links to hymns on the YouTube website – clearly, these only work if you are on your computer and connected to the internet! I apologise in advance if any advertisements come first – though you can normally skip them after a couple of seconds. If have a paper version of the order of service, feel free to sing loud and unaccompanied! – and if not, do treat the hymn as poems – which, of course, they are.
