Easter Sunday Services

God does comfort the disciples after the crucifixion but not with an explanation. God uses a simple element from nature, a stone that is rolled away from a cave to illustrate that life goes on. Jesus has been raised, he is no longer here and is going ahead of the disciples to Galilee and they are told there you will see him just as he told you. The journey continues as we follow in the Way of Jesus.

Prayer Walk (Labyrinth)

Monday - Wednesday of Holy Week, 9:am-4pm - Aldersgate Room

As part of our Lenten Spiritual Aides we will have our Labyrinth available for your private meditation.  The Labyrinth is an ancient form of walking meditation and the Christians who couldn’t go on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem would walk it prayerfully.  This portable one is a copy of the one on the floor in Chartres Cathedral, France.
