“Don’t push these children away. Don’t ever get between them and me. These children are at the very centre of life in the kingdom. Mark this: Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in.” Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them. Mark 10:14-16

“Why are you looking among the dead for someone who is alive? He isn’t here! He is risen from the dead! Remember what he told you back in Galilee, that the Son of Man must be betrayed into the hands of sinful men and be crucified, and that he would rise again on the third day.”
2000 years ago Jesus, God’s own son, came to earth. He brought a message of love and taught people to serve others in all they do. This revolutionary message undermined the authorities and religious leaders of the time, so he was arrested and executed in the most painful way imaginable, crucifixion.
Jesus’ body was removed from the cross and his body put in a tomb. Three days later, on Easter Sunday, the stone of the tomb rolled away and Jesus rose from the dead, inviting all people to participate in God’s life offered freely. For Jesus Christ did for us that which we could not do for ourselves.
That’s it. A simple story of hope. Because Jesus died for all the unGod-like things we have done, we can be forgiven. We can all start anew and hope is offered for all!
We’d love it if you’d join us on Sunday 16th April at 11:30am to celebrate this incredible act of love and message of hope.
Most people have heard of it, at least vaguely. Fewer people seem able to say what it is. Yet many of us have a sense that it was once important to our churches, and may still be so.
A movement has grown in the Presbyterian Church in Ireland to rediscover and recapture the importance of covenant theology for the Church today.
It is called ‘Close to Home’ because it seeks to shape church life to keep our children and young people feeling right at home in a joined up community of all ages, a place we all want them to stay.
In Wellington Presbyterian Church, we’re going to be exploring this for the next season in both our Sunday Morning services and in our home groups and mid-week bible studies.
We’d love you to join us in this journey. Come along on a Sunday morning at 11:00 or to the mid-week bible study (held every other Wednesday at 20:00) to find out more.
