Stations of the Resurrection

We, as Easter people, are infused by a vital source of energy through the power of God and discipleship for mission. We draw strength as a community of the living, resurrected Christ. May this meditation of stations renew our identity and direction from the words and presence of the resurrected Christ, that we might follow the path and discern Christ’s pattern for living the resurrected life as Easter people in the world.

Palm wreaths, in Mark we read that people used branches from the field – not only Palms. So this year let us make ‘Palm wreaths” to put on our door, made from local greenery or get the children to draw and colour them

You can make your own palm crosses from a palm leaf or from two pieces of paper – here is a video showing how from St Andrew’s Newlands.
