11am: Chrism Eucharist – The Chrism Eucharist takes its name from Chrismation (anointing). The Archbishop of York will bless oils for anointing candidates for baptism and confirmation and for healing. The Archbishop will gather members of the clergy from around the Diocese to renew the vows made at their ordinations.

This service will also be livestreamed.

The order of service is available here.


7pm: Liturgy of Maundy Thursday Eucharist – The Eucharist of the Last Supper recalls the final meal Jesus shared with his disciples in the upper room, before his arrest and trial. We remember that Jesus called us to love and serve one another through the washing of feet. As we bless bread and wine, we follow his command to proclaim his death until he comes in glory. The preacher will be the Archbishop of York.


8.30pm: Watch – The Watch will follow the Eucharist of the last Supper. The Watch – a type of vigil – recalls the time Jesus spent in the Garden of Gethsemane before his arrest, trial and crucifixion.
