From Monday 29th there will be a daily 'Easter Reflection' put on YouTube. This will be a 10 minute reflection on a part of the story of the cross from John's gospel with some questions to help you reflect further. These talks will also be given live as part of the Good Friday Meditation in church.
On Good Friday the Easter Story service will be available on YouTube. This is aimed at children and builds up a collage of the events of the first Easter.
