Celebrate Easter with the Chaplaincy: open house this Thursday, followed by readings

Reflections on the Seven Last Words, interspersed with the music of Joseph Haydn.

Easter approaches and our Chaplaincy is one again teaming up with the University of Leicester String Quartet (a subset of our Orchestral Society) to bring you a combination of readings and chamber music evoking the true spirit of Easter.

On Thursday 29 March, members of our ecumenical team will give short readings on the theme of the seven last words of Christ on the cross (see last year’s Newsblog story for details of what those are). Inbetween each reading, our string quartet will perform a piece of Haydn. And the whole thing takes place in the suitably thoughtful environment of St. Stephen's United Reformed Church on De Montfort Street, starting at 6.00pm.

Before that, the Chaplaincy Gatehouse is hosting an end-of-term ‘open house’ – between midday and 3.00pm on Thursday – for anyone who would like a little pre-Easter hospitality.
