Find out about events happening at St Lawrence this Easter…
Something to Celebrate
The events of Jesus’ death and resurrection, around 2000 years ago, still have a massive impact on us today. St Paul wrote about “the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord” – and that was all because of Jesus’ death and resurrection (Philippians 3:8). It’s because of Jesus’ death that we can be reconciled to God and forgiven, and it’s Jesus’ resurrection that gives us confidence in this and the opportunity to have a relationship with the living God. We’re always celebrating this – and all the more at Easter. Come and join us!
Something to Discover
As we celebrate the events of Easter, Jesus’ death and resurrection, and their huge impact on us, it’s a great chance for investigation. If you’re interested in finding out more about what Christianity and Jesus are all about, Easter is a great time to do some discovery. Come along to any of our services or events and listen in. You’ll be very welcome, and you won’t have to say or do anything you’re unsure about.
