We might be distant from each other physically, but we needn't be spiritually - and we certainly need not be distant from God...

Welcome & Introduction

Reading (Matthew 28:1-10 in the NIV)

00:00 / 01:11

Read by Vahan Rickards

After the Sabbath, at dawn on the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb.

 

There was a violent earthquake, for an angel of the Lord came down from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and sat on it. His appearance was like lightning, and his clothes were white as snow. The guards were so afraid of him that they shook and became like dead men.

The angel said to the women, ‘Do not be afraid, for I know that you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay. Then go quickly and tell his disciples: “He has risen from the dead and is going ahead of you into Galilee. There you will see him.” Now I have told you.’

So the women hurried away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, and ran to tell his disciples. Suddenly Jesus met them. ‘Greetings,’ he said. They came to him, clasped his feet and worshipped him. Then Jesus said to them, ‘Do not be afraid. Go and tell my brothers to go to Galilee; there they will see me.’

Praise God!

Life Breaking Through

Thanks to all who sent in photos of 'life breaking through'! As you watch the slideshow below, give thanks for the death-defying life God offers us in Jesus Christ...

You might like to view the slides whilst listening to the following track (press the play button) - a song I shared with you when I first came to take a service at Hadleigh URC back in March 2015 ('Alive' by Hillsong Young & Free). How time flies!...

Or, if you'd prefer something more traditional...

Message: Don't be Afraid!

00:00 / 10:06

If you or your kids would like something to do whilst you listen to the message, why not draw lots of flowers close together on an A4 sheet of paper. Then, afterwards, you can follow the instructions here to tear a cross. You'll have blossomed the cross!

(Or, if you have a printer, you can download the colouring sheet opposite by clicking on the image and use that as the base instead)
