Easter at Othona
Led by Nick Partridge
This year we welcome Nick Partridge to lead our Easter Celebrations at Othona Bradwell. He has been a member of the Othona Community for 10 years and is an Anglican Licensed Lay Minister and volunteer chaplain at Birmingham Cathedral.
The Easter weekend begins on Maundy Thursday with a Passover meal. Here, Nick will start us on our Easter journey with a variety of liturgy, music and reflection. On Good Friday, we will meet with the congregation from Bradwell Village, and join them on their Walk of Witness Procession from St Thomas Church to the Chapel of St Peter-on-the-Wall with the Reverend Stephen Poss leading a vigil service. Saturday evening will see our traditional bonfire on the beach, around which we will share our final service before Easter Day.
On Easter Sunday morning we will be joined by people from the local villages for a dawn service at the Chapel led by Stephen Cottrell, Bishop of Chelmsford. This first service of Easter will be followed by a cooked breakfast back at Othona. Throughout the weekend our 3 European volunteers will be leading various activities including our traditional egg-painting, Easter egg hunt and egg rolling.
