Some­times, news can be too good to be true and we react with fear, dis­be­lief and shock. The news of the resur­rec­tion of Christ brought these feel­ings to his apostles, but we know that in time those rumours of his resur­rec­tion would con­cret­ise into flesh and blood exper­i­ence of this new Adam appear­ing in the garden and bring­ing good news of peace with him. From this resur­rec­tion, these meet­ings, and those exper­i­ences we have been giv­en the light of the gos­pel as well passed down through the ages, and we are called to bring it to oth­ers.

  • Pray that in the light of the resur­rec­tion, we and all Chris­ti­ans might be strengthened to bring Jesus to those who don’t know him.
  • Give thanks for the great gift of Resur­rec­tion in our lives.

The Sen­tence Christ our Pas­sov­er has been sac­ri­ficed for us; there­fore let us keep the feast. The Lord is ris­en indeed, alle­lu­ia! 1 Cor­inthi­ans 5.7–8

The Col­lect:

God of glory,

fill your Church with the power

that flows from Christ’s resur­rec­tion,

that, in the midst of this sin­ful world,

it may sig­nal the begin­ning of a renewed human­ity,

raised to new life with Christ;

who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spir­it,

one God, for ever and ever. Amen.


Pray­er for our Par­ish

God of Love,
God of Mis­sion,
you alone bring growth to your Church,
send to us your Holy Spir­it to give
vis­ion for our plan­ning,
wis­dom in our actions,
and power to our wit­ness.
Help our church to grow in num­bers,
in spir­itu­al com­mit­ment to you,
and in ser­vice to our loc­al com­munity.   Amen
