Prayer for the Day
Living God, long ago faithful women
proclaimed the good news of Jesusí resurrection,
and the world was changed forever.
Teach us to keep faith with them,
that our witness may be as bold,
our love as deep,
and our faith as true. Amen.

All are welcome to receive communion
Prayers and anointing for healing are available during communion in the chapel,
at the back of the church.
Please keep this time silent for those who wish to pray


Theme for the day
We begin in the dark gloom of death.
All that gave meaning and joy
declared meaningless
leaving despair and confusion
Then in the cold morn stood the Christ
risen not to fix or make right
that bloody death
so that those old ways of living can go on.
This is Godís affirmation
Godís yes to the way of love.
Resurrection is not just for later
Now we are invited into the death of
our habits that deny
our ways of seeing that blind
our images of God that separate.
We are invited into Christís revolution of compassion and generosity
Godís uprising of humble love.
What then is our next step?
