Sunday 4 April 2010

Hello everyone and welcome to our Easter service.

Sunday Morning
10am - Shane Murray will be speaking:
This Easter we aim to focus on 'what the cross has done for you.' Often at Easter we focus on the death of Christ on the cross but not so much on the resurrection of Christ, so this morning we want to celebrate the resurrected Christ; the Christ that brings life and life to the fullest. So as we celebrate this wonderful event this morning called Easter may we all get a fresh revelation of the freedom that the resurrected Christ brings to each of our lives.

After the service be sure to stay and have a hot cross bun and a cup of coffee.

Bless you all,
Pastor Shane.
