God of glory, by the raising of your Son you have broken the chains of death and hell: fill your Church with faith and hope; for a new day has dawned and the way to life stands open in our Saviour Jesus Christ.  Amen.



You are our God:

who does all things well.


In your prayers this week could you pray for our five overseas partner Dioceses especially today the Diocese of Vasteras and for Churches Together, 3C’s Community Church.


Post Communion

God of Life, who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son to the death of the cross,
and by his glorious resurrection have delivered us from the power of our enemy: grant us so to die daily to sin, that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his risen life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

First Reading – 1 Corinthians 15 v3-10a


3For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, 4and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, 5and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve.  6Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died.  7Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.  8Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me.  9For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God.  10But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain.


Jesus Christ is risen today


Jesus Christ is ris’n today, alleluia!

our triumphant holy day, alleluia!

who did once, upon the cross, alleluia!

suffer to redeem our loss, alleluia!


Hymns of praise then let us sing, alleluia!

unto Christ, our heav’nly King, alleluia!

who endured the cross and grave, alleluia!

sinner to redeem and save, alleluia!


But the pains that he endured, alleluia!

our salvation have procured; alleluia!

now above the sky he’s King, alleluia!

where the angels ever sing, alleluia!



The strife is o’er the battle done


The strife is o’er, the battle done;

now is the Victor’s triumph won;

O let the song of praise be sung:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.


Death’s mightiest pow’rs have done their worst,

and Jesus hath his foes dispersed;

let shouts of praise and joy outburst:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.


On the third morn he rose again

glorious in majesty to reign;

O let us swell the joyful strain:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.


Lord, by the stripes which wounded thee

from death’s dread sting thy servants free,

that we may live, and sing to thee:

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Gospel Reading – John 20 v1-18


1Early on the first day of the week, while it was still dark, Mary Magdalene came to the tomb and saw that the stone had been removed from the tomb.  2So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.”  3Then Peter and the other disciple set out and went toward the tomb.  4The two were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first.  5He bent down to look in and saw the linen wrappings lying there, but he did not go in.  6Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb.  He saw the linen wrappings lying there, 7and the cloth that had been on Jesus’ head, not lying with the linen wrappings but rolled up in a place by itself.  8Then the other disciple, who reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; 9for as yet they did not understand the scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

10Then the disciples returned to their homes.

11But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb.  As she wept, she bent over to look into the tomb; 12and she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had been lying, one at the head and the other at the feet.  13They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?”  She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14When she had said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing there, but she did not know that it was Jesus.  15Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?  Whom are you looking for?”  Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.”  16Jesus said to her, “Mary!”  She turned and said to him in Hebrew, “Rabbouni!” (which means Teacher). 17Jesus said to her, “Do not hold on to me, because I have not yet ascended to the Father. But go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’”  18Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”; and she told them that he had said these things to her.

Thine be the glory


Thine be the glory,

risen, conqu’ring Son,

endless is the vict’ry

thou o’er death has won;

angels in bright raiment

rolled the stone away,

kept the folded grave-clothes

where thy body lay.


Thine be the glory,

risen, conqu’ring Son,

endless is the vict’ry

thou o’er death has won.


Lo! Jesus meets us,

risen from the tomb;

lovingly he greets us,

scatters fear and gloom.

Let the Church with gladness

hymns of triumph sing,

for her Lord now liveth;

death hath lost its sting.


No more we doubt thee,

glorious Prince of Life!

Life is naught without thee:

aid us in our strife.

Make us more than conqu’rors

through thy deathless love.

Bring us safe through Jordan

to thy home above.
