Easter with Above Bar Church

The Beginning of the Future

This Easter we’re celebrating Good News for all time. Jesus' death on the cross has dealt with our past – our sin, guilt, bondage and death because Jesus has entered them for us and emerged on the other side. His resurrection is the beginning of the new creation; He is the future and the resurrection is the evidence in time that the future has begun! The light of new creation has dawned; the darkness is defeated; the way to life is open - and this invites us to be a people not stuck in the past, but walking into the future. But it’s not just good news for our past and future, but good news for now! Jesus invites us to be born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, living lives in step with Him, and filled with His love.

We’re celebrating this truth in a number of ways over the Easter weekend, and we’d love for you to join us.
