Easter Sunday (April 4th)

*|END:WEB_VIDEO|*
While we can't gather for our usual Dawn Campfire Communion, we have filmed a special Easter Campfire service.

If you can, bring along some chocolate... 
 
Watch it on demand, or join us on Zoom at 10.30am with your breakfast/snacks to catch up, sing, watching our Campfire Communion , and maybe even try your hand at a food craft.
 
[ For those of us from an Anglican background, the physical bread and wine, consecrated and shared in person, is a key part of our tradition, and something we deeply miss. During the pandemic, we are invited to focus on Spiritual Communion :Read about Spiritual Communion here]
 
Afterwards, we will be inviting you to decorate the Christmas Tree Cross with bright coloured ribbons, as a sign of hope and new life.
  • 10.30am Join us online and share Easter Greetings.
    Feel free to bring along your breakfast/Easter snacks (look in the URC Easter recipe booklet if you want ideas)
  • 10.45am Watch Party for our Campfire Communion.
    If you have chocolate to hand, the video will prompt you when to share it.
  • 11.20am Optional Breakout Rooms
    • Rachel’s Food Craft session: bring along the ingredients to make the Easter Garden Biscuits on the backpage of the URC Lent at home booklets. You will need a digestive biscuit, green icing, a jammy dodger, a mini egg, and optionally some sprinkles.

    • Chat Room: looking back over Holy Week and sharing what has struck us

  • 11.45 Final Blessing
