Maundy Thursday Tenebrae (Holmfirth)

Date(s) - 29/03/2018
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Holmfirth Methodist Church


The Team Maundy Thursday service this year will be at Holmfirth Methodist Church, and will take the form of a Tenebrae service.
This is a service dating back many years, used in various forms by most Christian denominations. The word “Tenebrae” means “shadows” and refers here to the darkness of the events immediately before Christ’s resurrection. This is symbolised by the use of candles which are extinguished sequentially during the service. Come along and experience this ancient service.
