Online diocesan services for Holy Week

Friday March 26th 2021

You are invited to join a series of Holy Week Services to be shared online each evening at 7.30pm on the Connor diocesan Facebook page.

The services will be led by clergy from around the diocese.

Inviting people to share in the services, the Bishop of Connor, the Rt Rev George Davison, said: “These services offer an online opportunity for people from across the Diocese of Connor to share together in thought, worship and prayer as we once again mark the significant events of Holy Week. 

“If you’re not already joining in worship provided locally in your own parish, I’d love to encourage you to join us in these diocesan services – each with its own style and offering us an insight of worship in different settings.”

Bishop George continued: “I’m grateful to those who have agreed to share their worship with us.

“May it help each one of us to remember all that Jesus suffered so that we might be forgiven and prepare ourselves for the great celebration of God’s new life at Easter.”

The schedule of services is as follows:

  • Monday March 29: Mid Belfast Rural Deanery
  • Tuesday March 30: The Ven Barry Forde, Archdeacon of Belfast and chaplain at the Hub
  • Wednesday March 31: The David Ferguson, rector of Ramoan and Culfeightrin
  • Maundy Thursday, April 1: The Ven Stephen McBride, Archdeacon of Connor and vicar of Antrim. Preacher – the Rev Peter Blake
  • Good Friday, April 2: The Rev James Boyd, rector of Derryvolgie
