Easter Services

Spring seemed to start early this year. Some daffodils were out in February and the leaves started budding earlier than normal. Spring seems to bring with it the hope of good things to come, such as longer and warmer days, sunnier skies and happier people. We have eagerly looked for those signs of Spring which will bring us hope for the year to come. It is no coincidence that Easter happens during Spring. Just as Spring makes us hope for better things to come, so does Easter. Easter's hope is not one of uncertainty, just hoping for the best. Easter's hope is one of assurance that we have the knowledge that better things will definitely happen.

The celebration of Easter marks the dying and resurrection of Jesus Christ: God's son who was sent to us that he could share in our humanity. Jesus defeated death and rose from the grave and opened a pathway for us so that we may share in eternity with Him. There is nothing better to celebrate than eternal life.

The churches in Haddenham remember Jesus Christ and all He did for us during their services over the Easter period. It's time to celebrate and worship. Our village services are open to all – so come and join us. Happy Easter!
