Easter service times
Easter is a highlight here at Kippax. It is a time when we can experience the reality of life – both the highs and the lows. The Easter story is foundational to our faith, and the themes of Easter are themes that are our life themes as well. This year we have been preparing for Easter by being more and more grounded in the life of Jesus. Not in some abstract theological principle, but in the life of a person. Our Easter services will continue that feel. You are very welcome for one or all of the times.
Maundy Thursday – 17 April 7pm, “Perspectives”
This will be a quiet service, during which we share a light meal of lamb and bread. What are some of the different perspectives that people have on the life of Jesus and what was going on as he was betrayed and arrested?
Good Friday – 18 April 9am, “Stations on the Journey”
We will be thinking and praying through some of the traditional ideas of the “Stations of the Cross” but relating them to our setting, in our city, in our time. Who is betrayed today? Who are the ones who are condemned unfairly? Who are the ones who are comforted in their grief?
For those who prefer to be moving rather than still as they contemplate, we will have a labyrinth set up which will be available from 9am on and throughout the morning.
Easter Sunday – 20 April 9am and 1030am
With our Easter Sunday special times, we will be celebrating in a special way. The Easter Egg is bigger than ever this year, and hopefully so will be the sense of joy that there is a beginning where it looked as if there was only an ending. A life that is lived for the sake of others, rather than for themselves is affirmed and vindicated. He is risen.
