Christ is Risen!

Easter Sunday

Together we celebrate the Risen Christ

The Church is transformed with flowers and decorations of white and gold

Jesus Christ our Saviour
you have delivered us
from death and sin.
You have brought with the dawn
a new beginning and an empty tomb
grant us strength and humility
to enter into life

NZPD pg 592

Also known as Resurrection Sunday
Congratulations to Phillip on his Baptism

Good Friday Shadow Service

The only light in the Church is candlelight, all the covers are black and the appointed Shadows are presenting their personal reflections. This service is unique with the congregation representatives sharing: Betrayal, Inner Agony, Loneliness, Accusation, Desertion, Mockery and Death

Lord Jesus Christ
as we kneel at the foot of your cross
help us to see and know your love for us
so that we may place at your feet
all that we have and are.

NZPB pg 587

Opening Prayer

Inner Agony
Thank you all for your personal portrayal of your Shadow.
