Making Jesus Known through word, life & action.

Easter 2022

As a church, we passionately believe that the hope offered to billions of Christians across the world because of the message of Easter is hope for the entire world.

Like all our friends in churches across our area, the weekend from 15th -18th April will therefore be much more than just a long, hopefully sunny bank holiday. It will be the key point in our calendar where we celebrate the events of Jesus’ death and resurrection and contemplate together what these events mean for us and our community: locally nationally and internationally, today.

 It may be that this is a question you’ve never really given much thought to. Or it may be one that you’ve considered irrelevant. If that’s the case, you’re not on your own. We believe however that it’s never a bad time to think about these things and as a church community we are dedicated to being a welcoming place for everyone, always. We are a group of all ages, with all kinds of life experiences, who together are exploring more of what this message means for us. We don’t do pressure, but simply seek to be and belong together in a way that makes it possible to confront the big things of life and faith. And we hope to have great fun along the way as well.

So, whether you’re someone who is starting out in your exploration of these things, simply curious, or you’ve been thinking about these things for a long time, we would absolutely love to welcome you as we celebrate Easter together this year.

Our Good Friday Service will offer an opportunity for quiet reflection as we remember the events of Jesus’ death and share communion together, while our time together on Easter Sunday will be an all-age celebration, with activities to engage everyone, plus plenty of chocolatey goodies to enjoy!

If you would like more information about our services, or any of the other activities that we get up to together, you can get in contact with us by ringing our office (and probably leaving us a voicemail!) and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. There’s also lots of information on our website, and you can follow us on Facebook by searching for Downend Baptist Church. We look forward to welcoming you!
