Easter 2016 at Hazel Grove Baptist Church We have had an incredible week at Hazel Grove Baptist Church. On Tuesday we held the Year 7 Rewards Evening for pupils at Hazel Grove High School. It was a pleasure to celebrate the hard work and success of the school pupils. It was also good to strengthen our friendship with the school. On Wednesday we had a wonderful afternoon at Oasis. We looked at the story of the resurrection with a mix of quizzes, escapology and videos. The story that seems unbelievable is in fact is true. On Thursday we hosted Hazel Grove Primary Schools Easter service. We remembered that Easter is for those who feel broken and be comforted in that they can come and be healed by the person whose body was broken on the cross. We then headed into the weekend with a Good Friday reflection on the crucifixion. On Sunday we had our usual sunrise service with a moment of quietness reflecting on living our lives “The Risen Way”. Then 200 people enjoyed the Easter Breakfast of cereal, toast, bacon butties and fresh tea and coffee. Oh and the Cadbury’s cream Egg. This year the young people, with help from a few adults, prepared the meal as part of their preparation for the mission trip to South Africa in the Summer. At 10:30 am we had an amazing time together with our worship group starting the service with a performance piece. We then had our Easter puppet show, some great worship and a powerful message from Billy. To end the day we had a time of praise and testimony. It was wonderful to see how God had been moving in people’s lives. A GREAT DAY IN RELATIONSHIP WITH EACH OTHER AND OUR GOD.
