The Lord is Risen! Alleluia!
Today we celebrate the Good News of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and God's gift of New Creation found in Him. Because Christ lives, we can face even the darkest days trusting that God's saving love has conquered death, shattered the powers of sin, and set us free to share His life for all eternity.
The cross, in all it's cruelty, could not bring an end to God's Messiah, who bore its shame and terror for us, and transformed it into a sign of the unstoppable love of the Living God. Alleluia! Jesus Christ our Saviour lives!
Let us draw near to our Lord in worship, prayer, and praise.
Lord of life and power,
through the mighty resurrection of your Son, you have overcome the old order of sin and death and have made all things new in him. May we, being dead to sin and alive to you in Jesus Christ, reign with him in glory, who with you and the Holy Spirit is alive, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
Happy Easter everyone. Alleluia!
This Sunday our In-Person service at St. Luke's GP will be one of Lessons & Hymns, followed by Holy Communion, but with no Sermon.
In it's place, for our At-Home service you are invited to take a few moments after the Gospel to reflect on the readings, and specifically on the hope of the resurrection for yourself, our communities, and our wider world.
Our service of Morning Prayer and Bulletin this week can be found here:
