Come to the feast

Dear friends,

There is a huge table of worship for you to enjoy in the coming days; prayerful, colourful, crafty, interactive, tasty, musical, thoughtful, sacramental, liturgical, multi-sensory, dynamic, simple. So, I invite you all, come, and celebrate the great feast of Easter at your local church. Everyone is welcome.

Thank you for reading this far; there won’t be one of these next week, as I’ll be on leave. Thank you for all your support for your church throughout the year. It really does matter; having a church in every community is important, because of the way it reminds everyone that God cares and that his love is stronger than death. The good news of the resurrection of Jesus is a simple truth; death and suffering do not have the last word, and that God makes all things new in Him. Here’s a wonderful video to enjoy, from the children of Christ Church, Tunbridge Wells. Let us celebrate what God has done. Have a truly blessed Easter.

Your Rector, Canon Kevin.
