Physical signs of Easter
In addition to the online resources, we have had a cross erected in the Church grounds to mark Holy Week and Easter. We are hoping that as people have their permitted exercise, they will be able to see the cross and use this as a point of reflection. On Easter Sunday the vicar will decorate the cross with ribbons and as people pass by they can see the decorated cross as a sign of resurrection to new life (If you are in a vulnerable group, please stay at home)
Easter Egg Hunt – We were hoping that you (or the children) could colour in these Easter Egg sheets in and then put them in your window from Good Friday until Easter Day, to create a visible witness in our streets and also a virtual Easter Egg hunt for the children as they take their walks.
Lucy’s Little Movers will be on Good Friday & Tuesday 14th at 10:30.
Finally, we have lots of resources available through the diocese.
Bishop Richard has written a Homily for us to reflect on.
