Easter is the most important festival in the Christian calendar, when we celebrate the Resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. At Peter's we mark this special day with wonderful liturgy, worship and music.
Easter comes at the end of a sad, reflective season of the Christian calendar; during Lent, our thoughts have been turned towards the failings of humanity, and in Holy Week we have journeyed with Christ through His suffering and death.
With Easter we experience the joy of the first Disciples as we meet the Resurrected Christ and remind ourselves of God's unfailing love for all people.
At Easter services we say together the Paschal Greeting: "Christ is risen!" and the response: "He is risen indeed - alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!" We hope you will share with us the joy of Christ's resurrection this Easter.
Worship at St Peter's is open to everyone. Even if you are not a regular churchgoer, we hope you will come to celebrate Easter with us at St Peter's - you will be most welcome.
Sometimes if a feast day falls on a weekday, we transfer the celebration to a Sunday so that everyone can take part. Be sure to check the latest Parish Bulletin for full details.
