Easter Sunday 16/04/17

See, what a morning, gloriously bright,
With the dawning of hope in Jerusalem;
Folded the grave-clothes, tomb filled with light,
As the angels announce, “Christ is risen!”
See God’s salvation plan,
Wrought in love, borne in pain, paid in sacrifice,
Fulfilled in Christ, the Man,
For He lives: Christ is risen from the dead!

These were the words associated with Hail the Risen Lord (by Steven Ponsford) which the band played to commence our Easter Sunday celebrations.

During the meeting, led by Majors Chris and Lynda we celebrated the good news that Christ is alive! It was therefore appropriate that during worship, the band reminded us just how much God loves each one of us, as we shared Paul Drury’s beautiful arrangement of the well-known song, Such Love:

Such love, pure as the whitest snow
Such love, weeps for the shame I know
Such love, paying the debt I owe
O Jesus, such love

Such love, stilling my restlessness
Such love, filling my emptiness
Such love, showing me holiness
O Jesus, such love

Such love, springs from eternity
Such love, streaming through history
Such love, fountain of life to me
O Jesus, such love

After the morning meeting, despite the rain, we marched as a corps, through the streets of Bellshill to remind the local community of the true reason we celebrate Easter.

We wish you all a happy and blessed Easter!
