Comox United hosts Easter Sunrise Service at Goose Spit

Celebrate Easter this year by following in the footsteps of Jesus and his disciples.

After the resurrection Jesus greeted his disciples at the Sea of Galilee as the sun rose when they came ashore after a night of fishing. He then cooked fish for their breakfast.

To commemorate this event, Comox United Church is having a family friendly Easter Sunrise Service at Goose Spit. Meet at the big bonfire at Goose Spit at 6:30 a.m. At 6:40, Reverend Keltie van Binsbergen will conduct a short service as the sun rises in the Georgia Straight, followed by a breakfast of roasted cod on buns. Gluten-free buns are available.

For more information, call the church at 250-339-3966. If it’s pouring rain, this event will be held at the church, which is on the corner of Comox Avenue and Beach Drive. For updated information, please go to our website at
