St. Peter’s moves to Rec Centre for Easter service

Sunday, March 27 at 10 a.m.

Easter is a time to celebrate hope!  A time to rejoice in new life! A time for joy! All of these elements will be clearly evident as  St. Peter’s Church gathers Easter Sunday morning at the Comox Recreation Centre.

You are warmly invited to come and join this celebration beginning at 10 a.m.

“In a world filled with bad news – we join together to celebrate the Good News,” declares Rev. Jim Lyster, the parish priest. “We hope that many people from across the Valley will come to join with us as we celebrate the Resurrection.”

This is the fifth year that St. Peter’s has moved to the Comox Recreation Centre on Easter Sunday.

“We need more space on Easter Sunday,” says Pastor Jim. “The greater space allows us room for creativity – and room to invite our neighbours to come and join us.”

This Easter morning  service will be a true celebration.  There will be wonderful music – both traditional  hymns and modern songs will be sung.

A dramatic presentation early in the service will allow people to consider the experience of Mary as she encountered the empty tomb.

Liturgical dancers lead in worship  at two points in the service. Large worship flags will also be used as part of the celebration.

While there will be no formal nursery or Sunday School for this service, activity packages will be available for all of the children, who will also enjoy an Easter egg hunt following the service.

You don’t have to be an Anglican to appreciate the joy of this Easter Sunday morning service. All will find a very warm welcome. Refreshments will also be served after the service.

Those wishing a quieter Easter Morning Service are welcomed to worship at St. Peter’s Comox at 8 a.m.

The Comox Recreation Centre is located at 1855 Noel Ave. in Comox. This Easter Service will be on Sunday, March 27 at 10 a.m. For more info, call 250-339-6416.
