Happy Easter!

March 31st, 2018 · No Comments

Wishing you a Happy Easter!

Our congregation gathers from 9:00am for an Easter Breakfast and an Easter Bonnet Parade in the Church Hall. Worship will begin in the Hall about 10:30 then we will move through to the sanctuary for Easter Communion. Building on the rainbow theme used throughout Lent to remember God’s covenants we will light a white candle on Easter Day to symbolise the Risen Christ, Light of the World.
