Holy Week 2021 Sermons

We were thrilled to have the Revd Peter Lewis preach during Holy Week. His terrific sense of humour shone through all his sermons which can be found on our YouTube channel. Click here for a full listing. His use of a work of art for each talk brought a freshness to our understanding of Holy Week.

  • Try to find as many objects as you can beginning with each letter in the word EASTER.  For example, for the letter 'E' you could find an egg.  Or, if you want a challenge:
  • Take a walk around Witney and try to find 6 road names beginning with each letter in the word EASTER.  For example, 'East End' for the letter 'E'. 

Good luck! The Witney Benefice Youth Council.
