Holy Saturday: 9pm The Easter Vigil: We light the New Fire in the churchyard and process into an otherwise dark church, reading a point in the service where the church is filled with light and sound (and lots of flowers!) to proclaim the resurrection. Then we move on to celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter.

15 April

Easter Sunday: 8am Our usual early morning said service in traditional language.

Eucharist: 10am A celebratory Eucharist in contemporary language with music and robed choir. At this service, children who have been prepared will take communion for the first time, and the Easter Garden will be blessed.
