Watch our Easter Service reflecting on the resurrection - the ultimate invitation. Jesus' return was a profound act of hospitality, of inclusion, and welcome. Have a tin of food with you when you watch (for a meditation during the service) which you can then donate to a local foodbank after watching. Share the link with interested folk.

The Ultimate Invitation - Easter theme online

Our new theme for April that starts on Easter Sunday The Ultimate Invitation is now online. The resurrection - the breathtaking moment of heaven touching earth - is a profound act of hospitality, of inclusion, and welcome. It’s the ultimate invitation. The drama of resurrection, of sacrifice and new life, sparked the global movement of Christianity, an invitation to all - no matter where you are from or who you are.
