Christ is Risen!

Remembering the women, who went to Jesus’ tomb early on the first day of the week, St Paul’s held a sunrise service at 6.30 a.m. today on Brock’s Hill Park. Arriving in the dark and cold (-4° C) a small group held a short service, with hymns (led by a guitar) Bible reading, a meditation and prayer. We remembered the surprise of the early disciples of finding Jesus’ tomb empty, and his appearance to Mary. The disciples came to realise that Christ is risen. What joy. He is risen indeed! Hallelujah.

Then our group went back to Church for a bacon butty, croissants and coffee, before returning home and coming back for our main morning service at 10.0 a.m., when we could again rejoice that our Saviour is alive.
