Video of Maundy Thursday Communion Service Thursday 28th March 2024

Maundy Thursday Communion Service led by Rev. Tim Bradshaw

A very moving service that provides the opportunity to think more deeply about the Passover meal of Jesus and His disciples the evening before Jesus was to die for our sins.

The edited video of the service below, together with links to videos of the hymns that were sung and the order of service, enables you to see the service if you weren't there in person or online and also if you were, and you want to see it again.

There isn't a video available for the final hymn StF 267 Jesus in the Olive Grove. Instead, here is a link to an MP3 recording of the tune and the words of the hymn are given below.

   1      Jesus in the olive grove,          

waiting for a traitor's kiss,

rises free from bitterness.

   2      As he wakes his comrades up,

torches flicker in the glen;

shadows turn to marching men.

   3      In that dawn of blows and lies

Church and State conspire to kill,

hang three rebels on a hill.

   4      Innocent and guilty drown

in a flood of blood and sweat.

How much darker can it get?

   5      How much darker must it be

for a God to see and care

that we perish in despair?

   6      It is God himself who dies!

God in man shall set us free:

God as Man — and only he.

   7      Let him claim us as his own;

we will serve as best we can

such a God and such a Man!

Fred Pratt Green (1903–2000)

This hymn is particularly suitable for use in “A Service of Light and Darkness” on Maundy Thursday;  the music should continue from one verse into the next without a break.
