XTC. Wrapped In Grey & Peter Pumpkinhead (for Holy Week & the Passion) Easter Theatre (for Easter Sunday)
Three homegrown songs from David Clifton: There Is A Green Hill, I Believe (it’s true) and No Greater Love
We journey from the celebration of Palm Sunday and through the agony and The Passion of Holy Week, to the despair of Easter Saturday. Seemingly the Light Of The World had been extinguished forever. Yet the resounding joy of Easter morning confirms that every promise made is indeed true, and that the words of Jesus Christ can be trusted. We open our hearts and step through the door to a new dimension of Spiritual reality. We set sail to a new destination, in the trust of our faith, safe in the knowledge and reason for our belief. A path to follow along the journey of this life of joy and sorrow. We celebrate the treasure of our Christian faith in a world that is currently persecuting followers of Christ in ways hitherto not imagined. We pray for peace, tolerance and understanding. And we pray that the Spiritual depths of the Gospel will be revealed to a world that so often misunderstands the Way, the Truth and the Life of the compelling vision of the Gospel and the transforming message of Jesus Christ.
