Church of England

Palm Sunday comes one week before Easter. It remembers Jesus arriving in Jerusalem, riding on a donkey. The crowds welcomed him by throwing palm branches and cloaks in front of him.

The colour of Palm Sunday is RED. Often the whole story from Palm Sunday to Good Friday will be read in church during the main service.

The story of Palm Sunday can be found in:

  • Matthew 21:1-11
  • Mark 11:1-12
  • Luke 19:28-40
  • John 12:12-19
