‘But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.’
1 Corinthians 15:57
Easter is central to the Christian faith. It’s a time for us to pause and consider Jesus’ work on the cross, to celebrate and rejoice in his resurrection and victory over sin and death.
As usual, there is a lot happening at King’s this Easter, beginning tomorrow, Friday April 12th: In the morning we have an Easter Family Event taking place at the Catford site, from 9.45am until 12.00pm, for children 10 and under. This promises to be a lot of fun, and if you have friends or family with children under 10, why not invite them along? Then in the evening at 7.30pm, also on the Catford site, we have another Encounter night, when we will come together to worship, receive the Holy Spirit, and pray for the new 1.30pm service and the Easter weekend services.
Services for the Easter weekend itself begin on Good Friday, 19th April. At 10.30am there will be a short, hour-long service taking place on each site except Beckenham. This will be an opportunity to reflect and remember Jesus’ death on the cross and to break bread together. Please note there will be no children’s work at these services. Then please join us again on Easter Sunday, 21st April, when we will be celebrating the risen Jesus Christ. Services will be at the usual times on all sites and children’s work will be running as normal. As this is likely to be a busy day at King’s, why not come to the 1.30pm service at the Catford site to make room for more visitors?
As we come to the end of this spring term and look ahead to the Easter weekend, let’s respond to the provocation of our recent Reach series by inviting our friends, family, neighbours and work colleagues to an Easter event. More details on everything happening over Easter can be found on the King’s website.
I shall look forward to being back at King’s this weekend after my recent travels. This Sunday is Palm Sunday and Andrew Wilson will be preaching.
