Passover Supper: Wednesday 17 April 7pm, Fifield Parish Hall
On the Wednesday of Holy Week, we would like to invite you to Fifield Parish Hall for our Passover Supper. We welcome people of all ages to this event which is great for families, very interactive, and there are Easter Eggs to find and readings to be read by children and young people. As the evening unfolds we learn about the Jewish tradition of the “Passover meal” and reenact it from Jesus’ perspective at his Last Supper, with his disciples. Please R.S.V.P. to the office or call Catherine Hitchens 01993 831881 to book your place.
