An Easter Message from Revd. Richard Merrick (Vicar) on behalf of everyone at Holy Trinity

Easter Bunnies, Easter Bonnets, Chocolate Eggs - they’re all great fun and tasty too, but the true message of Easter can get lost in all of those celebrations.

Easter is by far the greatest of all of the Christian festivals. The celebrations of Christmas, of God coming among us in the birth of the innocent Christ child, Jesus, come to a climax in His death on the cross on Good Friday.

Why is that Good? Why do we celebrate the death of an innocent man? Because three days later God raised him back to life! Death is not “The End!” Jesus offers new life to all and eternal life for all who will accept Him.

Come and discover this for yourself. Join us for worship this Easter and meet with the Risen Christ.

Wishing you God’s blessing this Easter.
