Maundy Thursday service 13th April, 7pm (in Auchtertool Kirk, with Communion offered to those who wish).
This evening service remembers how Jesus shared a supper of bread and wine with his closest friends. He knew it would be his last meal before death and execution on the cross, but even so, he served all his friends, even the one who betrayed him. According to John, Jesus washed his friends tired and sore feet to refresh them for what was ahead - a work usually servants would do. After the meal, Jesus and friends went out into the open air, a garden, where he later was arrested and led off for questioning.
You can hear more of the story and make sense of it when you go to Lent and Easter services, together with other churches in Kirkcaldy we offer many, see separate entry in blog.
