Holy Week & Easter Services 2017
Palm Sunday Procession April 9th:
The Wantage & Grove Church Partnership annual Palm Sunday Act of Christian Witness will take place again this year. The procession will gather at Holy Trinity Church, Charlton for a blessing at 9:45am and will then set off to walk to the Market Place, accompanied by Wantage Silver Band and a well-behaved (?) donkey.
In recent years the number of walkers seems to have fallen. It would be good if more people could participate. If you don't think you can manage the whole distance you could join anywhere along the main road or even just line the road and Market Place.
This is an important act of witness and the more who participate the better. We would be pleased to see our friends from Grove. The expected arrival in the Market Pace for final words and a hymn around 10:20am
