Here are a range of resources that you can use at home during Holy Week and Easter. We have tried to offer a good range of resources so please do look through and see which ones will suit you best. For worship resources for use at any time see Worship during the coronavirus pandemic.

Worship from home service sheet for Easter Day
This specially created short act of worship have been produced as we are unable to attend church physically. If you are well enough why not spend a few moments with God, knowing that other people are sharing this act of worship with you?
If you have members of your church or community who aren’t online, you might want to consider printing the services sheets and other resources from our website and posting them on. You can buy stamps online. Royal Mail has advice on its service during the pandemic if you have any questions or concerns: www.royalmail.com/coronavirus
If you are printing and distributing these Acts of Worship please add your church's CCLi number and add the songs to your annual report.
These resources are for use every day between Palm Sunday and Easter Day. They are designed with individual use in mind, to complement the worship at Home Sheets offered for Palm Sunday and Easter Day.
You can use them in the knowledge that others will be offering their worship in this way too.
This poster is in two parts - display the first part (top half) in you window up until Easter Sunday morning.
Then add the second part (bottom half) to make the poster complete (as seen here) on Easter Day.
You can also download a black and white version to colour in yourself as a mindfulness activity.
The Lectionary during Holy Week in a time of coronavirus
For 2020, Singing the Faith has arranged the suggested readings and related hymns for Holy Week a little differently. The new layout is designed to support personal reflection and worship at home, as well as planning for online streamed worship.
You can find the Lectionary here.
Holy Week at Home
On this page, the Children, Youth and Family team have created and compiled a wide selection of family-family resources and activities that cover the whole of Holy Week and Easter.
