Easter at Highfields Church

And of course, there’s the remarkable arrival of the vaccine, with all the optimism and hope that it brings. After the last twelve months we’ve all lived through, there’s a definite sense of a light at the end of the tunnel.

The springtime routine of putting our clocks forward, which heralds the arrival of British Summer Time, is an annual indicator that the darkness of winter is passing and a new season beginning to dawn.

In the short-term, the clock change is a painful one, where we lose an hour of well-loved sleep. But very soon that short-term pain is replaced by the long-term gain of longer and brighter days. Perhaps over the last year you’ve been longing to put the clock forward to a time when this horrid pandemic and all the restrictions could be finally over.

The first Easter began with friends living in terror. An innocent young life was cruelly snatched away in its prime. A contagion of fear was sweeping the community. Shut away behind closed doors, everyone was wondering, first it was Jesus; who would be next? This was the dark before the dawn.

And then everything changed. Rumours of Jesus’s resurrection began to be spread. People saw him, ate with him, touched him. New life had broken into a dying world. And people remembered him say ‘whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?’

At Highfields Church we believe that the hope that the risen Jesus Christ brings can get you through the longest of winters. Happy Easter!
