Happy Easter!

Thank you to all who made our Holy Week and Easter events and services so special; to Dan and the choir for wonderful music through the week, culminating in a beautiful Festal Evensong on Easter Day; to the flower arrangers who created such a colourful show in the church; to those who helped with the children's craft activities on Good Friday (see the poster and pew ends below for a taste of what we got up to), and to readers, churchwardens, sidespeople and others too numerous to mention.
Here are a few pictures to the right and below, taken on Easter Monday, of the church in all its Easter glory. We continue to celebrate Easter, of course, for many weeks to come (the Sundays are called "Sundays OF Easter" not "Sundays AFTER Easter". And there is a sense in which we should be celebrating Easter all year round - we are an "Easter People" - God calls us to discover his Easter freedom and resurrection in the whole of our lives. You can find the sermon for Easter Sunday here.

The children made pew ends , proclaiming "Christ is risen! Alleluia!"
