Maundy Thursday Watch

The United Parish has normally held a Watch and Stripping of the Sanctuary on the evening of Maundy Thursday.  Although people cannot come to church for this service this year, the Readings and Psalms, and hopefully some of the sense of silence and darkness has been captured on video.  The video lasts 25 minutes while the service normally lasts an hour  Although you can watch the video without pausing , there is also plenty of opportunity to use the pause button should you wish.  You may also wish to have a candle or candles nearby – both to light and to extinguish.

An Order of Service is here:  Maundy_Thursday_Watch although this is primarily for people who may be hard of hearing or who cannot access the video.
