As Holy Week begins this weekend with Palm Sunday we gather together to share an Easter in a new expression of Alone Together.
We have opportunity to experience afresh the momentous story of this week in the life of Jesus. And in this unique season of ongoing pandemic, we will also be exploring Eata’s life and liturgy – ‘In Times of Change’- which is so pertinent for these days.
Through videos, audios, activities, reflections and social media we pray that God might connect us as we – Alone Together – seek Him with our all and bless others in His name.
We are delighted to invite you to join in with our Easter programme again, this year. As we continue to live through this disorientating time of pandemic, we are asking that God might ‘call out in us a willingness to love and serve’, acknowledging these times of change and looking to the example of Eata, and the themes of our Eata liturgy, for inspiration.
Each day, starting with Palm Sunday, we will be posting a link to all of the day’s materials. With the exception of the Caedmon evening (which is for those on our database only), these resources will be open access, for anyone to use.
Through videos, audio, activities, reflections and social media we pray that God might connect us as we – Alone Together – seek Him with our all and bless others in His name.
We look forward to welcoming you.

Each Wednesday during Lent we will be bringing you midday prayers from across our dispersed Northumbria Community network.
Today’s Midday Prayer comes from Evesham and we join with Sarah & Edward Pillar, accompanied by the song of a robin and the whine of a drill! They are on the site of Evesham Abbey, dismantled in the 1500s. Two churches, a bell tower and a cloister arch remain. The sound of the drill comes from current restoration work taking place at one of the churches, St Lawrence’s which was built to welcome pilgrims amidst an era of plague.
You’ll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew,
rebuild the foundations from out of your past.
You’ll be known as those who can fix anything,
restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate,
make the community livable again.
