Holy Week and Ea A very big thank you to everyone who helped during Holy Week and Easter Weekend to visiting clergy for leading us in our worship, to Malcolm and the choir for providing the music, to the church cleaning party and the flower arrangers for making the church so beautiful and to everyone who has supported us. The week started with Palm Sunday and we were delighted to welcome Rev Richard Jackson, Bishop elect of Lewes and Hastings, to our 10.30am Palm Sunday Eucharist service. His arrival was somewhat unconventional as he arrived in Wisborough Green on his Harley Davidson motorbike and came into the church with his helmet under his arm and dressed head to toe in black leather. This must be a first for a visiting priest! He gave an insightful and thought provoking sermon about how to live life as a true Christian and after the service chatted to members of the congregation over a cup of coffee. We wish him every blessing in his new post as Bishop and pray that he will lead with integrity and inspire those around him. In the evening we were treated to a moving performance of The Crucifixion by John Stainer.

The choir of St Peter’s was joined by members of other local choirs and the Tenor and Bass soloists were our own Peter Edmonds and Robert Armistead. The performance was conducted by Malcolm Brinson and beautifully accompanied by the organist from Petworth, Matthew Cooke. Palm Sunday - The Crucifixion
