Easter at Christ Church
As a Church we're really excited to be preparing to celebrate Easter. It's a time of sober reflection and great celebration as we remember the death and subsequent resurrection of Jesus Christ who died to give us eternal life and allow us to share in the inheritance of the Kingdom of heaven.
Do read on below to find out about our Easter services and events.
Easter Bake Along

and Activity Trail
Do join us between Monday 29th March and Sunday 11th April for our Easter Garden and Activity Trail. There will be different activities stationed around the Church to learn about the Easter story and a reflective space too. We'd welcome you to join our Easter egg trail to piece together the Easter story, decorate a stone to leave at our Easter Garden and leave a prayer or thought at the cross.
There will be a booklet guiding you through each stage and resources will be provided in a Covid safe way.
