As the above service at Trinity cannot go ahead in the usual way Claire Hargreaves has prepared a home version you can use on Maundy Thursday.
The word "Tenebrae" comes from the Latin meaning "darkness" or "shadows". In this service candles are extinguished so that gradually light diminishes until it ends in darkness. This gathering darkness symbolises the approaching pain of Jesus' death and of hopelessness in a world without God.
As we live through the darkness of the Coronavirus pandemic this Tenebrae service takes on new symbolism. We finish in silence and contemplation, but with the sure hope of light to come.
The service is attached here as a pdf and can be downloaded and printed.
