Weekly Notices / Virtual Church Service – Easter Sunday 12th April 2020

Watch our Virtual Church Service

Happy Easter! You are welcome to join us for a Virtual Easter Church Service by video. Click here to watch.

This Easter Sunday we are all invited to participate in a collective “Agape” celebration, where we share something to eat and drink whilst being in communion online. Rather than a piece of bread and a small glass of wine, you will need to have something to drink and something to eat to hand. The early Methodists used water and cake, but you can choose anything you like! Make this a real Easter treat.

This Sunday’s service has the following contributions:

  • Opening Prayer – Andrea Smith
  • Bible Reading: Jeremiah 31:1-6 – Ian Smith
  • Kids Corner – Christina Bramley
  • Bible Reading: John 20:1-18 – Esther & Mary Painter
  • Easter Reflection – Rev. David Perry
  • Time of Prayer – Sue Atkins
  • Agape Celebration – Rev. David Perry

Please see the link at the end of the video for some selected worship songs.

Agape is the New Testament Greek work for “self-giving love”. In the Christian tradition an “Agape” is also the name for an open-table friendship meal recalling the meals Jesus shared with his friends and followers during his ministry. A Love Feast expresses the mutuality, interdependence and generosity that characterized their common life and which is enjoyed and embraced by those who follow him today. Although its origins in the early church are closely interconnected with the origins of the Eucharist, the two services became quite distinct and should not be confused with each other. The Love Feast became a feature of the Evangelical Revival and a regular part of Methodist society meetings in Great Britain and throughout the English–speaking world.
