This is not a St Edmund’s event, but you may be interested in the Sunrise Service at 6:30am on Easter Day, which will be held in the Priory Ruins in Priory Park.
You can find details of the services over the Easter period elsewhere on the web site, but as a reminder:
Wednesday 28th March – usual 12:15 service (Fr Tom Atfield)
Good Friday, 30th March – 10:00 am Stations of the Cross AND 19:00 (7pm) Liturgy of the day
Holy Saturday, 31st March – 19:00 (7pm) Easter Vigil (Fr John Oakes)
Easter Sunday, 1st April – 11:00, the usual time (Canon Graham Lyall)
I’m rather late posting this, but please remember that the clocks SPRING forward on Sunday 25th – if you forget to reset your clock you may miss the service!
The local press has been carrying news of the £280,000 project to restore and improve parts of the church.
The project is largely funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund, but smaller grants have also come from The Wolfson Foundation and the Garfield Weston Foundation.
Work is due to begin after Easter. The church will be closed when work is under way, although Wednesday and Sunday services will continue as normal.
For more information please follow follow the links below to articles which have appeared in Dudley News and the Express & Star.
The February issue of the church magazine is now available. You can access it by clicking on the cover picture above, or here in the web site, or it will be available in printed form in the church.
