Easter Sunday: "The angel said to the women, “do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay."

Steward On Duty Today:
Steward duty today is Mandy Atkinson any problems please see either Mandy or any other stewards.
The Welcomers are June Tweedley, Steph Shipley, and Estelle Buckley.
Easter is coming…
Easter is here…
Christ is risen!
He is risen indeed!
Darkness cannot overcome the light of God.
Death cannot defeat the life of God.
We take away the symbols of betrayal, suffering and death.
Stripping of the Cross
We remove the cup – the symbol of suffering love.
We remove the money bag and thirty pieces of silver – the symbols
We remove the whip – the reminder of the cruelty inflicted upon our innocent Lord.
We remove the palms – symbol of praise that so quickly turned to derision and to cries of “crucify”.
We remove the bowl and towel and the bread and wine – symbols
of the sacrificial love of Jesus.
We remove the nails – that held our Saviour to the cross.
We remove the crown of thorns and purple robe – the reminders
of the mockery Jesus endured.
We replace the crown of thorns with a crown of flowers for
Jesus is risen!
God has put an end to death and darkness
in the risen life of Jesus Christ.
Christ is risen indeed.
During the singing of the hymns the stewards will dress the cross with flowers.
