Welcome to St Andrew's, Cobham. We are Cobham’s parish church and our aim is to know Jesus, and to make him known. We offer a host of activities for adults and children. Please explore our website to find out more. We hope to see you soon.
Over the next few days we will be journeying through the events of Holy Week ... imagining that current restrictions applied ...
It was time to prepare to celebrate the Passover
Festival. The usual gatherings of extended family were out this year, due to
the restrictions. The disciples were puzzled as to where they could share the
meal but somehow Jesus had made an arrangement. He told some of the disciples
to go into the city where they would see a man carrying a jar of water (usually
women's work). They were to follow him and ask the owner of the house he goes
to where the rooms is and to make preparations there. They found everything as
he had told them.
Now normally a servant would wash the guests feet on
arrival but there couldn't be any servants this year, only the
"household" of the disciples. The disciples were surprised when Jesus
himself took a towel and the bowl of water and indicated that he would wash
their feet. Peter protested, “you will never ever wash my feet!” but Jesus
replied, “Unless I wash you, you won’t belong to me.” Then he said an odd
thing: now you are all clean, except one.
