Easter Sunday

We've got a great celebration lined up for Easter Sunday. We're focussing on the impact and the implications of the resurrection, an event which truly changed the world. We often focus on the cross more than the resurrection, yet reading through the book of Acts you realise that the resurrection took a greater place in their preaching than the cross. We're going to take a look at why that is, and how the reality of the resurrection can make a difference to our every day lives.

In advance of the meeting you might like to ponder on this quote from N.T. Wright - "Jesus's resurrection is the beginning of God's new project not to snatch people away from earth to heaven but to colonize earth with the life of heaven. That, after all, is what the Lord's Prayer is about."

Please plan to get there on time as the meetings are going to start with a bang (and end with chocolate!).

Simon.

The chocolate will be all the sweeter for those of us who have given up chocolate for lent!! Will the children be in the Easter morning meeting at all? Suzanne
