what went through the minds of those first century followers of Jesus when they arrived at the burial place of Jesus and found that there was no body there? And when angels asked them the question, 'Why are you looking for the living one among the dead?'. Suddenly, the truth dawned on them... 'He is alive!'.

Easter Day brings the greatest of Good News stories - "Christ is risen and is alive". The Lord who was really dead is now truly alive and, what's more, He appears to his friends to show them that fact! Individuals, couples, and large groups of people saw Him and verified that he was alive. These eye-witness accounts cannot be just be ignored or discounted. They saw Him, they talked with him, they ate with him - and they told their stories and shared their joy.

Today, we're following in their footsteps - and we're still telling the story of the Risen Saviour and how His death means eternal life for us. We believe in a future life promised to us by the Lord Jesus Christ - and His resurrection is the guarantee of that life.

The historical facts, and the eye-witness accounts, are there to be investigated. I invite you to take a look at the stories and the truths they reveal. You may discover the reality of the Easter experience is for you to believe in too.

And Easter doesn't end today. For Christians, every day is an Easter day - so we invite you to come and join us soon at one of our services. You'll be made most welcome.
