With great care husband and wife create a Lenten Cross for 2020.

We cannot meet for worship and so we have celebrated Easter in our homes but our congregation has missed our Ceremony of the Lenten Cross.

This ceremony usually takes place each week throughout the weeks of Lent when we place different symbols each representing the passion and suffering of Jesus leading up to his crucifixion on Good Friday.

The ceremony on Easter Day is very special as we take away from the cross all the symbols which represent the passion and suffering of Jesus leading up to his crucifixion. We then decorate the cross with flowers — from tragedy to triumph.

The decorated cross is then placed outside the Chapel for all the world to see.

Celebrate with us the Resurrection of Jesus.

One hymn writer puts it this way

"I serve a risen Saviour, He's in the world today
I know that He is living, whatever men may say
I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer
And just the time I need Him He's always near.

He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Christ Jesus lives today
He walks with me and talks with me
Along life's narrow way
He lives (He lives), He lives (He lives), Salvation to impart
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart."

Jesus is alive.

He lives today and wants to share our lives with us.
