Easter Morning Service

What a wonderful time of worship on Easter morning with our preacher Mr. Bryan Harrison. To praise God for the resurrection of Jesus and to enter into the emotions of those early disciples, like Thomas, who came to experience for themselves the power of the resurrection of Jesus was so uplifting.

Then to listen to the words of Paul sending his letter to the Church of Corinth in 1 Corinthians Ch 15 verses 1 to 20 in which he talks about the resurrection of Jesus so clearly and powerfully.

During the weeks of Lent we had been reminded of the journey which Jesus made ending up in Jerusalem and his crucifixion. Each week we had put different symbols at the cross. There was the bread and the wine, the towel and bowl reminding us of Jesus washing the disciples feet, the money bag reminding us of Judas' betrayal, the crown of thorns and the purple robe, the whip, the palm branch and then the nails which held Jesus to the cross.

This Easter morning all of the symbols were taken away and the Cross was decorated with flowers.

Everyone in the congregation shared in the joy of this Easter Day as we transformed the Lenten Cross from a place of horror to a place of beauty with the decoration of the cross with Easter flowers. The cross was then placed outside the Church.
