Some of our local churches will hold Easter morning 'Dawn
Services' in remembrance of the first Easter morning when Mary
Magdalene and the other Mary went to look at the tomb and how
following a violent earthquake, an angel of the Lord came down
from heaven and, going to the tomb, rolled back the stone and
sat on it and said to the women, 'do not be afraid, for I know
you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He is not here; he
has risen'; and also how Jesus appeared to them as they hurried
away from the tomb, afraid yet filled with joy, to tell the
disciples of the good news.
Why not set an early alarm this Easter Sunday morning and enjoy
the fun and fellowship of early morning worship with one of our
local churches, the times and venues for the dawn services are
