This Sunday we start a new series called Colours of the Cross. The death of Jesus on a wooden cross nearly 2,000 years ago is the central event of the Christian faith; what many would claim to be the turning point of human history. The cross and its meanings resonate throughout the New Testament writings and colour every aspect of what Christians believe, our values and how we should live. To the first Christians it meant freedom, forgiveness, sacrifice, victory, reconciliation with God, and so much more. In this series we will explore some of the range of understandings of what happened when Jesus died, and what it means for you, me and the world today.
Our theme this Sunday is Sacrifice. We also share Communion so if you are joining with us from home you might like to be ready with some bread and wine.
