Happy Easter

A really important religious event, or just another Spring weekend with a couple of bank holidays?
A vital event in human history, or a good excuse to go a bit mad on chocolate?
For Christians, Easter celebrates the central moment of human history: the death and resurrection (return to life) of Jesus Christ.

3 Christ died for our sins. 4 He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.
5 He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve.
6 After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died.
7 Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles.
A reborn and revitalised group of followers, prepared to face death and persecution because of their beliefs.
A rapidly growing Early Church, charted through the book of Acts, leading to a Church of billions around the world today.
If Jesus is alive, it changes everything: our attitude to life and death, our past, our present – and our future.
It means death is not the end, and there is a life that last forever!
It means we can know the Creator of the universe, and live life as He intended it to be lived.

Do think about looking up your local church services.

We pray that you have a great Easter.
