Alleluia, Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed! Alleluia!



  • To everyone who has decorated, cleaned and prepared so many services this Easter
  • To those who have so faithfully joined in Morning and Evening Prayer each week in Lent
  • To those who have attended our Holy Week services, especially the Triduum on Maundy Thursday, Good Friday and 6am this Sunday
  • To our speakers and the many who have attended our benefice Lent course, which was really rather inspiring
