What is Easter?

Have you ever thought that there must be more to our lives - someone to believe in, someone who loves us unconditionally and offers us forgiveness for the wrong we do, and who gives us peace?

On Good Friday, over 2,000 years ago, Jesus died on a cross and took upon himself the punishment for all our wrongdoing.

Because of this, God offers us forgiveness, freedom and peace from the burden of what we do wrong. God longs to be close to us in every part of our lives.

On Easter Sunday, Jesus was resurrected, which is why this is a time for new life, new beginnings and light in our lives.
