Seeing lives transformed through encounter with Jesus
The 7 days of Holy Week, leading to the joy of Easter Day, are the most important in the Christian year.
We remember the final week of Jesus' life - sharing his last supper with his friends, washing their feet, betrayed by them, arrested, tortured and crucified, and all seemed lost - until the glory of Easter Day, when Jesus rose again, and revealed that life is stronger than death.
We know again that God walks with us in the darkest days of suffering,
working to bring hope, life and love out of death and despair.
On Easter Day we celebrate Jesus' response to the brokenness of sin -
in his glorious resurrection to a new, transformed life.
