Easter Sunday - 8th April

We were up long before dawn this morning, to meet up for a sunrise Eucharist service at the top of a local hill. We drove through the darkness and drizzle, found the car park, fumbled our boots on, and set off down the lane - about thirty - forty of us?

Singing with the birds in the light drizzle under a grey sky may not be everybody's idea of heaven, but there we were, as a family, a church family (including a dog), sharing together.

Next year the fields at the bottom of the hill will be a sea of new houses, maybe shops, perhaps a school - who knows - even a new church.

Our challenge is to help them feel at home, to welcome them into our church family.
Same place, Easter 2011 - when the sun did rise exactly on cue
