This liturgy uses our "Slow Church" format during which no sermon is preached but rather the group engages the liturgy's readings in reflection together.
Today we offer optional foot-washing (John 13:1-17) as we commemorate Jesus' institution of the Lord's Supper/Holy Communion. In John's account of the Gospel, there is no "Last Supper" per se, as depicted in the Synoptic Gospels—instead, the evangelist recalls Jesus washing the feet of his disciples. In this liturgy, both rituals are offered—Communion and Foot-washing, using the "Proper Liturgy for Maundy Thursday" from The Book of Common Prayer and Common Worship texts from the Church of England.
