HOLY WEEK

The North Buckingham Parish consists of the Villages of Akeley, Leckhampstead, Lillingstone Dayrell, Lillingstone Lovell and Maids Moreton as well as part of the town of Buckingham. Each of the congregations within the Parish endeavours to reflect a multi colourful richness and diversity of the respective communities embedded in Christian unity. Everyone, living within or outside the Parish, is very welcome to come and join any of our gatherings and add his or her personality to the richness of our Christian identity. Wether you are just browsing or looking for something specific in our website, we hope you will find our five Churches of interest, and would like to take part in our weekly worship or activities.

From the very young to the emphatically ‘not so young’ there’s a group to suit you, and we are waiting for you to join us.

Holy Week is the week before Easter, commemorating events in the last days of Jesus' life on Earth. It begins on Palm Sunday and ends on Easter Monday. The Sunday before Easter is known as Palm Sunday. It celebrates Jesus' triumphal arrival in Jerusalem for the Jewish festival of Passover.


During Holy Week, Christians commemorate the Passion of Christ, Who died on Good Friday in reparation for the sins of mankind, and rose on Easter Sunday to give new life to all who believe. Thus, while Holy Week is solemn and sorrowful, it also anticipates the joy of Easter through the recognition of God's goodness in sending His Son to die for our salvation.
