Easter

Why not come and see what is happening at St Botolph's this Easter?

Easter for some people means longer daylight hours and warmer days. Others may notice the signs of new growth in the flowers, plants and trees. The chocolate treats and the pictures of chicks in the shops say something is happening. Maybe you smile at the sound of children out and about that bit longer after school, playing and enjoying the freedom to be outdoors later.

Things are changing around us constantly but Easter Day gives us the opportunity to sit up and take notice of a time when things changed suddenly and dramatically. To spend time wondering and pondering on that one event which changed everything for everyone - and that includes you and me. Jesus is risen from the dead.

Nothing could ever be the same after that event and when we stop to think about that first Easter Day, maybe things will change for us in ways we cannot imagine.

Everyone is welcome at our services. Maybe this Easter is a time for you to come and see what changes are possible for you and the world around you?
