On Easter Sunday, churches across England will celebrate because Jesus died for our sins and then rose again.
On the third day after being crucified, Jesus' tomb was found to be empty. He had risen from the dead. Life triumphs over death! The joy of resurrection is possible only because Christ endured death and conquered it. Some churches celebrate Jesus' bringing life from death by making and blessing an Easter garden. Throughout Lent, churches are kept stark and bare but on Easter Sunday, the churches are decorated with flowers and the sombre purple of Lent is replaced with celebratory white or gold. There is a real party feel to many services with uplifting music and repeated alleluias (an exclamation of joyful praise).
You will be welcome to join one of our services on Easter Day.
We will be celebrating Easter Day with the following services.
8.00am: Holy Communion (BCP)
9.00am: Café Church in The Institute at Gt Barton. Join us for breakfast, followed by a short informal act of worship.
10.30am: Easter Day Communion at both our Churches of Holy Innocents’ Gt Barton and St Peter’s Thurston.
Following both the 10.30am services you are invited to join us for tea/coffee, biscuits and a chat.
