October 2017 to March 2018
The spring has felt very late in arriving this year, with heavy snow in March coming as a shock to our systems!
As the gardens and parks recover from the cold snap, we see signs of new life emerging around us, as flowers begin to flourish. The shops are full of Easter eggs, chicks and bunnies, all symbols of fresh new life, and a reminder to us of the meaning of Easter.
Though at Easter services, we remember the death of Jesus for us, the message of Easter isn’t death, but new life. Jesus, risen from the dead on the third day, so that we can have fullness of life through him. That’s why we celebrate with sweet treats and symbols of new life!
If you would like to find out more, you’re very welcome to come and join the celebration with us.
