Searching for...

Sunday, 27 March 2016


On this most holy night,
when our Lord Jesus Christ passed from death to life,
God's children throughout the world 
come together in vigil and prayer.
Remembering the Passover of the Lord,
we remember His death and resurrection
by hearing His word and celebrating His mysteries,
confident in sharing His victory over death
and life with Him forever in God.
Mighty God,
in Whom we know the power of redemption,
You stand among us in the shadows of our time.
As we move through every sorrow and trial of this life,
uphold us with knowledge of the final morning
when, in the glorious Presence of Your risen Son,
we will share in His resurrection,
redeemed and restored to the fullness of Life
and forever freed to be Your people.
Through Your resurrection power
heal us and lift us from sorrow, loss, pain and grief,
that we may know the fulfillment of Your promise
in our restoration to wholeness.
In the power of Your Name we pray.  Amen.
We share the Light of Your glory
through Your Son, the Light of the world.
Spark Your new fire within us;
light Your new Hope.
Send forth Your Light and Truth 
and lead us.
The Light of Christ.
Thanks be to God.
Blessed are You, God of gods,
Whose saving love endures forever.
Your holy light pierces cold and darkness,
death and chaos.
You cut a covenant of life 
which no evil can overcome.
May the glorious radiance of resurrection
dispel the shadows in our lives
and conform us more closely to our risen Saviour
Whose blood has ransomed and paid for us the price of Adam's sin.
To Whom, with You and the Holy Spirit, be Glory, Praise and Honour
Forever.  Amen.

God of glory,
Who raised Jesus from death to life.
As we are united with Him in death,
so unite us with Him in resurrection.

dispels the darkness of our hearts and minds
as we greet this Easter dawn
and recognize

He's Alive !
