Easter at St Columba’s began with an electrical fault, making it harder for us to feed the hungry this week. However, we made the best of it, and eventually full power was restored.
This year, we celebrated Holy Communion at all three Easter services, early morning, mid morning and evening. A fair trade breakfast was provided between the two morning services.
In our main service, we decorated a cross with flowers, which was moved outside to our small Easter garden afterwards, so that passers-by could enjoy it. Laura sang an Easter song as a solo. We also had a dramatised reading of part of the Easter story, and were reminded by our Pastoral Friend, Revd Gordon Connacher, that we need to have an open mind if we are to recognise Jesus among us.
