At Trinity the annual Church in Abingdon Lent Lectures came to an end on Monday. The church has been reconfigured for Experience Easter this week and so the lecture took place on the Labyrinth.
Will Donaldson gave the lectures based on his book about the Beatitudes: Living differently to make a difference. Will Donaldson is the chaplain at St Edmund Hall in Oxford. St Edmund Hall was named after St Edmund of Abingdon, and Will has also written a book about St Edmund of Abingdon called The Servant Heart. The front cover shows the statue of St Edmund in the grounds of St Edmund Hall.
Lots of school children will be going to Trinity this week for Experience Easter – a series of workshops, specially developed by Trinity Learning to allow KS2 students to follow The Easter Story in a meaningful way. This will be the tenth year of Experience Easter.
In ten days time on 6th April 2019 the Abingdon Passion Play is happening. There will be other activities, including an Easter Egg Hunt, before the main performance at 2pm.
