Easter Sunday

BIG Easter Sunday

He is risen indeed. Alleluia!

What a glorious start to our service… the local bell-ringers were working industriously in the bell-tower as we arrived, providing an unmissable reminder to the Ashleworth village community that it was a very special day!

The church grounds had recently been mowed by our volunteer grasscutters, with the incessant rains adding a verdant lustre to the grass, while daffodils and other spring flowers held their heads aloft in the sunshine.

Within the church, the team of flower-arrangers had worked their magic, providing a range of delightful window displays lit by dappled sunlight, to add to the beauty.

Music for the service was provided by a team of performers, with piano, flute, guitar and violin considerably enhancing the enthusiastic singing of the congregation!

Our service told the familiar story of the crucifixion and resurrection with a series of Easter Voices; Mary, mother of Jesus, John – the disciple, Salome and the Roman guard who had stood outside the tomb. Each reading gave a unique perspective of the events that had taken place on Good Friday, right through to the discovery of the empty tomb on Sunday morning.

He is risen indeed. Alleluia!
