A group of people walk silently towards an empty cross, the sun is yet to rise but a miracle has happened. He has risen.
Easter Sunday, April 21, marked the celebration of Jesus Christ, the son of God, rising from the dead. His victory over death and his selfless sacrifice in dying for mankind’s sin marking a new relationship with God.
On Sunday, scores of Newcastillians participated in the annual Interdenominational Easter Sunrise Service.
Singing hymns and listening to biblical messages on Jesus, the service is not one of sadness. Rather, it is one of joy and celebration. It is a moment where people reflect on their lives and commemorate all that Jesus has done for them.
The Interdenominational Easter Sunrise Service began in 1991, taking place at Hilldrop on an annual basis. Growing to be a highlight on the Christian calendar within the town.
This year, the special service was held at Grey Goose. Allowing Christians to celebrate God’s word, surrounded by a scenic view and a variety of wildlife.
Celebrating the resurrection of Jesus, attending Newcastillians left the event feeling rejuvenated and closer to God. Knowing their sins are forgiven and they are able to form an even stronger relationship with the Almighty.
