It’s Palm Sunday! We will remind ourselves of Jesus processing through the streets of Jerusalem with the Palm Crosses that we take home.  At Easter we revisit many stories of Jesus’ life, coming back to the cross where He died for us. It’s an opportunity to come back to that  place to remember and thank God for his grace towards all of us, and indeed all within our parish and beyond. Its also true that we may need to go back to experiences in our life and then lay them at the cross for God to heal us of pain and hurt. We pray that you will blessed in this Holy Week and at Easter and through Jesus’s death and resurrection find wholeness in Christ.

There are a number of opportunities for you to do this;

Maundy Thursday at  7.30 – A joint reflective Tenebrae service at the Presbyterian Church   including a symbolic washing of hands

Good Friday at 10.00 – an hour at the cross, a chance to mediate and reflect on the eye witness accounts of Jesus’ death through readings, narrative and hymns.

Easter Sunday – ‘Whatever next?’ – services at 8.00, 9.15 and 11.00 to celebrate new life through Jesus.

Please remember, pray and support the youngsters and their leaders this week as they go to Easter Camp. It promises to be a fantastic time for them. We plan to go and visit and see what goes on too! The good news is that $2150 has been raised against an estimated $2121 total costs. Thanks to all who have contributed and will help set up the camp. Martin and the Lighthouse Youth are going to report back to the 3 services later on in April – we can’t wait to hear the stories of God meeting them!
