Black and White Movie or 3D Experience?

As a young boy, before I became a Christian, Easter for me meant nothing more than chocolate eggs and extra meetings at church. The chocolate was something I did look forward to, the church services were something I didn’t.  At that time, the story of the cross, the resurrection of Jesus, seemed like a black and white movie – stuck in the past, outdated, irrelevant to me.

Then when I was 19, God broke into my life.  For the first time I had begun to consider seriously the claims of Christianity.  It was a journey that led me to be convinced that Jesus was raised from the dead - suddenly, Easter took on a whole new meaning.  Discovering that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead was a 3D multi-coloured experience.  This message of forgiveness, life and truth, was vivid and life-changing.  In a moment, this story from the past became alive in my present.

Nowadays, I really look forward to the Easter weekend.  At our Good Friday services, whilst feeling responsible for our gathering as Senior Pastor of King’s Church, I will give thanks that a saviour died for me. Then on Easter Sunday I will rejoice that He is risen and will enjoy preaching the good news.  My title for this Easter Sunday is ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news’.  I will be eternally grateful to those who brought the good news to me.

I look forward to seeing you at King's over this Easter weekend.  The times for our services are summarised below:

Good Friday, 3rd April
- 10.30am at Catford, Downham and Lee

Easter Sunday, 5th April
- Catford: meetings at 9.30am, 11.30am & 5.30pm
- Downham: meetings at 9.30am & 11.30am
- Lee: meeting at 10.30am
