Easter at Sunnyside

I wonder how you feel about life at the moment?  Are you excited about what is happening?  Are you angry about injustice?  Are you overwhelmingly grateful for the love someone has shown you?  Are you enjoying time with your family and friends?  Are you in pain and suffering in body, mind or spirit?  Are you in the darkness of despair?  Are you overjoyed by an unexpected event?  You will find all of these emotions in the Easter story.  There is the excitement of Palm Sunday when Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a donkey;  Jesus’ anger with the money changers in the Temple;  the love shown in feet washing;  the fellowship of the Last Supper Jesus celebrated with his friends;  the agony of the cross on Good Friday;  the darkness of Holy Saturday when Jesus laid in the tomb and his friends thought it was all over;  and finally the joy of Easter Sunday with its empty tomb and cry of ‘Christ is risen!’

However you feel about life at the moment, why not come and discover more about Easter at Sunnyside Church?  You will find a very warm welcome awaits you.
