Easter Day Sunrise Service Sunday 21st April 2019

We met on the Woodbridge river wall by The Bandstand at sunrise. This year sunrise was at 5.46am so the service began at 5.30am!

The worship was led by Woodbridge Salvation Army and the musicians of the Woodbridge and Leiston Corps. This was followed by refreshments in the Deben Yacht Club. Many thanks to the members of the Deben Yacht Club for allowing the use of their wonderful facilites.  The Woodbridge River Wall is indeed a wonderful location.  Especially on Easter Morning.

Good Friday Walk of Witness 19th April 2019 at 10am

Every Good Friday we meet on Market Hill and follow behind a cross, a route around the town, stopping near each church to listen to a reading reminding us of the events of the first Good Friday when Jesus was crucified of each one of us. This year we ended up at Quay Church for a service and refreshments. This procession is contemplative, but there is a great feeling of unity as we share this most important day together and look forward to the events of Easter Day when Jesus rose from the dead and is alive in our hearts today!

Good Friday Walk of Witness. Friday 14th April 2017

Woodbridge Churches Together Walk of Witness 2017.  Members from all the churches in Woodbridge gathered at The Shire Hall on Good Friday and after initial prayers and readings the procession followed the Cross. The procession followed a route around the town stopping at various points and churches for more readings , prayers and hymns.  Finally at 11.10 the procession joined members of the Quay Church for a service.  The morning was concluded with refreshments inside the Quay Church.  Many thanks to our friends at the Quay Church for their wonderful hospitality., We hope you enjoy the pictures of the different stages of The Walk around the town.

Woodbridge Passion 2015

We organised a Passion Play in Woodbridge this year, following up the success of the events in 2011 and 2007.

It was to have been in Elmhurst Park at 10.30am on Good Friday, April 3rd, but because of bad weather we moved it to the Riverside Theatre. So many people turned up that we had a live stream from nearby Quay Church!

 

Woodbridge Passion 2011

Six years ago members of Churches in Woodbridge and Melton presented a Passion Play in traditional costume on Good Friday out in the open air of Elmhurst Park.

This year (2011) a more contemporary re-telling of the Easter Story will be presented in the same park by church-goers of the town. Jesus will arrive in Elmhurst Park at 10.30am on Friday 22nd April, depicting the procession on Palm Sunday and will be greeted by children waving palm leaves and singing ‘Hosanna!’ A choir and cast of actors will then lead the audience through the events of that first Easter as Jesus celebrates the Passover meal with his disciples, prays in the garden, is arrested by Roman soldiers, is tried and Crucified and finally Rises from the dead to appear before his friends once again.
