If there should be a resurrection

Just in case there should be a resurrection tomorrow morning, all is prepared. The church is clean – brushed, polished & bedecked with flowers thanks to an host of folk who turned up this morning to help.

The times of the services tomorrow are:

7 am – Easter Vigil with Blessing of the Fire, Bishop Idris, Baptism and first Eucharist of Easter

8.30 am – Said Eucharist in St Anne’s Chapel

1030 am – Sung Eucharist – hymns, anthems, sermon. This service will be followed by a ride-past of more than 10 000 bikers.

6.30 pm Choral Evensong

There are 1200 chocolate eggs hidden around the church which need to be found and consumed between the Sung Eucharist and the arrival of the bikers.

If there should be a resurrection…

I always feel on Holy Saturday that you never can be sure.
