Services for Easter Day

Join us for worship at Saint John’s on Easter Day.

Our first service is the Easter Dawn Service at 6.15am. This begins with the lighting of the Paschal Candle from the Easter Fire. Then, after the singing of the Exsultet and the vigil of readings we go to the font to renew our baptism vows before continuing with communion.

Our normal Parish Mass is at 10am. We bless the Easter garden at this service before continuing to celebrate the resurrection.

Easter Day services

A reminder that we begin at 5.30am in the morning, before sunrise, with the Easter Fire and the lighting of the Paschal Candle. We expect to finish about 8am with the gospel reading of Jesus preparing breakfast on the seashore for the disciples. After which we head over to the hall for breakfast ourselves. For those who can’t manage to get up so early, our Parish Mass, at which we will bless the Easter garden, is at the usual time of 10am.
