Easter Vigil
Apr 20 @ 8:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Jesus died on Good Friday. On Saturday his body lay in a tomb. We do not know the exact time that he rose from the dead, but on Easter Eve we will gather in a darkened church at 8.30 pm to hear readings from the Old Testament about God’s covenant with the people of Israel and how they were liberated from slavery in Egypt. We then begin to celebrate our own liberation from sin and death by Jesus’s death and resurrection. We end our worship by renewing the promises we made when we were baptised, in preparation for Easter Communion tomorrow.
