ON Good Friday, we gathered with more than 300 Ely Christians, to follow a rough wooden cross through the city's streets for a service on Market Square. The silence, save for the footfall of so many local believers, was powerful testimony to the faith and devotion of those present.

On Sunday, we gathered as a church to celebrate the rising of Jesus, and to meditate on the impact on our lives, and on our community and world, of 'resurrection power' and its enormous cost. Holy Communion offered an opportunity for quiet personal reflection on the crucifixion. The service consisted of Scripture readings and poems, a children's talk, songs and prayers of rejoicing, and a brief address from the pastor. Most stayed on for a delightful lunch and a good time of togetherness.

Sunday service: 10.30am - the pastor will speak on Peter's First Epistle and its message for today. Créche and children's class will be provided. All are welcome.
