We are Easter People!
In these next few weeks, with the whole Church throughout the world, we will
celebrate the most amazing, grace filled events in history.
The passion, suffering and death of Jesus will focus our minds throughout Lent and Holy Week on how, through Jesus' death on the cross, the power of evil and death were defeated.
Then, with the dawning of Easter Day we join our voices with millions of other Christians in the refrain:
Christ the Lord is Risen today, Hallelujah!'
Our faith is built on nothing less.
Using the words, 'Easter People,' reminds me of the events organized some years ago by Rev Rob Frost, and the title has remained. Ever since that first Easter Day, the followers of Jesus have witnessed his living presence in their lives and we have been Easter People! So how do we know and live this risen life?
Our churches are south of the River Tees in North East England, an area once known for heavy industry and petrochemical plants. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and coast, a community spanning inner city to idyllic rural villages, with a population drawn from Asylum seekers to Artisans, Students to Surgeons and Mechanics to Millionaires. Please look around our website and perhaps visit us. You will be most welcome
