Maundy Thursday Meal

A Simple outline for a Maundy Thursday meal:

Just before you eat your Supper:

  • Someone reads out Mark 14.12-23
  • Share some bread together. Any bread will do, but if you want to be adventurous you could make your own unleavened bread (recipe below)

Enjoy your Supper!

After Supper:

  • Someone reads out Mark 14.24-26
  • Share a cup of wine (alternatively use grape juice or Ribena)
  • If you are feeling bold, sing a hymn together
  • The oldest says a short prayer or you could say the Lord’s prayer together



Recipe for unleavened bread

  • 1 cup flour
  • Half cup cold water
  • Pinch salt

You can use any flour, but different flours will need differing amounts of water, so don’t add all the water at once. If your mixture does become too sloppy though, just add more flour.

Mix all the ingredients together, and knead for 5 minutes. (It will become smoother and less sticky during this time)

Divide the mixture into 4, and roll each piece out until it is a few millimetres thick.

Cook in a dry frying pan over a medium heat. It will take a minute or two on each side. Keep an eye on it so it doesn’t burn. Keep all cooked flatbreads wrapped in a tea towel, to keep them soft.

This is also a good recipe for when you run out of bread during lockdown!!

Bible Readings

Mark 14.12-26 is available here:

Hymn suggestion

When I survey the wondrous cross

On which the Prince of glory died

My richest gain I count but loss

And pour contempt on all my pride

Forbid it Lord that I should boast

Save in the death of Christ my God

All the vain things that charm me most

I sacrifice them to His blood

See from His head His hands His feet

Sorrow and love flow mingled down

Did ever such love and sorrow meet

Or thorns compose so rich a crown

Were the whole realm of nature mine

That were an offering far too small

Love so amazing so divine

Demands my soul my life my all
