JESUS CHRIST IS RISEN TODAY! HE IS RISEN INDEED, ALLELIUA!
Today at our Easter Sunday service, the congregation were surprised and delighted to be 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.
