Maundy Thursday takes us into the heart of the city of Jerusalem to commemorate the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles. We are also led to the heart of love, by the Saviour who serves and washes the feet of his friends as they shared their final meal. After supper they go out to the Garden of Gethsemane, where Jesus asks his disciples to stay awake while he prays. Judas, the betrayer, comes with soldiers and Jesus is arrested.
Bishop John Perumbalath will be the preacher on this day, as well as on Good Friday.
Bishop John Perumbalath is the Bishop of Bradwell in the Diocese of Chelmsford and originates from Kerala in South India.
On this day there will be a Diocesan Service of Renewal: Diocesan Chrism Eucharist, whereby Clergy and Ministers from across the Diocese gather with the Bishops to renew their vows and receive Holy Oils for ministry in the year to come.
