We brought you the ‘oss’ at Christmas.
We thought about bringing you the ‘bunny’ at Easter.
But Easter is about Real Life, for Real People.
So we’ve binned the bunny and instead here is a flyer explaining why Easter matters to REAL PEOPLE!
See for yourself. This is our Easter Leaflet. In it a few of the folk at Grace Community Church explain why Jesus’ death and resurrection matter so much in their day to day lives.
On it is also an invitation to our 2011 Easter Services - you’ll be very welcome at Easter or indeed any Sunday.
Crosses have been in the news recently – whether Christians should be allowed to wear them at work or whether employers can prohibit that. But in the midst of that we can easily over look the big picture.
Wearing a cross around your neck?
In the video below John Dickson helps us begin to see the shocking nature, the historical reality and the meaning of Jesus’ death on a cross:
As a church, in the run up to Easter, we are re-examining how true Isaiah’s words are, spoken hundreds of years before Jesus’ life and death: ’by his wounds we are healed’ (Isaiah 53:5).
Peter in the New Testament takes them up and tells the Christians he is writing to: ‘He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.’ (1 Peter 2:24).
Jesus’ death on the cross is the climax of his life and his mission. No accident or tragedy. And it is the source of forgiveness and new life for all those who turn from their sin and to God for hope!
You are warmly invited to join us for our special Easter Services on Sunday 8th April at Grace Community Church, followed by hot cross buns and refreshments.
