Latest message from Hugh…..

Dear Friends,

What are you looking forward to this Easter? Some spring flowers? An extra day off work? A holiday, perhaps? Lucy from the cartoon Peanuts said, “All I really need is love - but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt!” Well, Easter certainly has the chocolate! More importantly, it also has the love.

Cardinal Basil Hume once said, "The great gift of Easter is hope - Christian hope which makes us have that confidence in God, in his ultimate triumph, and in his goodness and love, which nothing can shake."

Jesus’ friends, who had lived through the horror and disappointment of Good Friday, were dreadfully shaken and assailed with doubt. But they found hope again on the first Easter morning and a confidence in his love which changed them forever. Christians are finding it still.

Our Easter services may not feature any chocolate, but we will certainly be celebrating God’s wonderful love and we would be delighted for you to join us.

Hugh Conkey.
