Holy Wednesday

lectionary, News, worship resources

Welcome to Wednesday in Holy Week. This week as we explore the readings of Holy Week through our senses today’s reading for us is from John’s gospel (RCL yr A) and can be found here.

We join the story of Jesus and the disciples together, just after the Jesus serves them in the washing of their feet. Our focus today is in Jesus predicting Judas’s betrayal.

Today we are going on a treasure hunt, looking for Judas’s 30 pieces of silver.

Or let’s head to the kitchen to make up a silver feast (you may need the supermarket first for this one!)
