Easter Experience

Posted on Sunday 31st March

Ottery Church hosted a wonderful Easter Experience on Saturday. The church was filled with children and families walking through the events of Holy Week. We processed and waved our palms for Palm Sunday. We coloured in a chalice and loaf as we recalled the events of the Last Supper. We walked with Jesus to the seat of judgement and heard about his trial before Pilate and we laid a stone in front of the crown of thorns. At the large cross we then made our own little crosses from twig and wool and laid them at the foot of the cross. We sang, prayed and listened. And then as we proclaimed that “God’s not dead!” we enjoyed a hectic Easter egg hunt.
