On Maundy Thursday we contemplate Christ’s call to service as he washed his disciples’ feet and give thanks for the gift of Holy Communion as we remember the Last Supper.
5.30pm: Choral Evensong
Choral Evensong is sung daily during Holy Week by the Choir of York Minster.
7pm: Eucharist of the Last Supper
The Eucharist of the Last Supper recalls the final meal Jesus shared with his disciples in the upper room, before his arrest and trial. We remember that Jesus called us to love and serve one another through the washing of feet.
As we bless bread and wine, we follow his command to proclaim his death until he comes in glory.
The sermon will be delivered by Rhidian Brook, the Holy Week Preacher.
8.30pm: The Watch
The Watch will follow the Eucharist of the last Supper. The Watch – a type of vigil – recalls the time Jesus spent in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest, trial and crucifixion.
