Notices for Holy Week
Services for PALM SUNDAY April 10th 2022
This week our services are different to usual as we remember Jesus triumphal entry into Jerusalem before his arrest and crucifixion.
I am sorry but there will not be a streamed service from All Saints Church Kemble as our service is a procession. You are welcome to join us at any point and dogs are always welcome but should be kept on a lead please.
10:00am Procession starts with prayers at All Saints Church Somerford Keynes. We will leave approximately 10:10 for St Michael Poole Keynes and after a brief stop (est 10:40) there will continue to All Saints Kemble arriving approximately 11:15 where we will join together for a short informal service.
There is also a procession starting at St Kenelm Sapperton at 10:15am and walking to St Luke Frampton Mansell for a short service starting at 11:00am.
Everyone is welcome to join us and well behaved dogs are always welcome in our buildings.
