Holy Week & Easter 2017

St Bride's was delighted to welcome so many visitors and congregants during Holy Week and the Easter festival. Use our Listen Online service to catch up on a compilation of musical highlights from that period as we journey through services on Maundy Thursday, and the devotional hours of Good Friday, to the proclamation of Easter in the light of a new dawn on Easter Day.

St Bride's offers a varied and full programme of music throughout the year at our Sunday services performed by our professional church choir as well as hosting regular lunchtime recitals.

'What about him, Lord?'  (John 21:21)

The urge to compare ourselves with others is a strong one. It often stems from insecurity or jealousy, or dissatisfaction with our own lot. Peter, looking at John, asks Jesus 'What about him?', in other words, what is his life going to be like? Jesus replies that Peter needs to focus on his own life, not John's. We can get so caught up comparing ourselves to others that we neglect the fact that we have our own unique path through life, with our own challenges and opportunities. We are called to be the person God wants us to be: our very best selves.

Lord, thank you for all those whose paths have crossed my life and those who have challenged me to be a better person. Amen.
