Sunday 12th April 2020
Welcome! to our Easter Sunday Scattering online. Wherever you find yourself scattered, we pray you will be encouraged from God’s word as we open to Luke 24: 44-53 and see that Jesus’ resurrection was incredible news for all with a fearful view of death. And we’ll be asking the question: What would it look like if Easter was cancelled?
Following, is all the information you will need to be able to benefit from our scatterings this Easter Sunday.
