Champagne reception for Easter Sunday service at St. James!

JESUS CHRIST IS RISEN TODAY! HE IS RISEN INDEED, ALLELIUA!

Today at our Easter Sunday service, the congregation were surprised and delighted to beĀ greeted with a glass of champagne as they arrived! Why? Because today we celebrate the single most important event in our church year: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As the vicar explained – in any other setting, a big celebration would be accompanied with these little extras we all enjoy and even expect – weddings, coming of age parties, etc. Why shouldn’t the modern day church celebrate in the same way?

In a similar vein, every member of the congregation was given a gift to take with them at the end of the service. If you are wondering what gift could possibly follow a champagne starter – well, it was an Easter egg, of course!

Our services take place at St. James Church, Shireshead, Forton, Lancashire – why not come to along and see what our enterprising vicar is going to think of next? Click here to find out more.
