Some people think that Easter is just one weekend in the calendar - but I believe that it's much more than that! It's an event which reverberates throughout the year and across the years.

The resurrection of Jesus from the grave two thousand years ago has huge implications for all of us today. The evidence for the resurrection is overwhelming - and would stand up in a court of law. In raising His son, Jesus,  back to life, God proved that he meant what he said - that good would triumph over evil! And for us today, this promise of risen life gives us hope when things in our lives are really difficult and dark.

We have been 'born anew - into a living hope...and into an inheritance which is kept for us in heaven - even though for now we are being tested and tried.'

The events of the first Easter - and what followed - demonstrate that we can trust in God's promises; and we can rest on His unfailing and unending love.

Whatever is happening in your life right now, I believe that God offers us hope of new life - in the here and now as well as in the hereafter...

If you'd like to know more, why not join us at one of our services... you'll get a warm welcome..
