On Palm Sunday morning the Right Reverend Graham Usher, The Bishop of Dudley led the worship at Knighton Parish Room and Knighton Church.
At the Parish Room, children from Lindridge St Lawrence Primary School, and elsewhere, sang songs learnt through recent assemblies with Rev Ted and they sang them beautifully.
The Bishop talked about the story of Holy Week and the children enacted this story and walked through the congregation at the Parish Room shouting “Hosanna”, “Blessed is He”, and ululating in celebration.
The congregation then processed to the Church with balloons and palm crosses, where Lindridge Choir greeted them and where we joined together for Holy Communion. To finish our Palm Sunday celebration the Choir sang “The Ukrainian Orthodox Hallelujahs” and “Thuma Mina” (Send me, Lord), which was extremely moving.
