7pm Night Service

The Empty Tomb – a service holding a space for the post-resurrection low in which we acknowledge our shared experience of loss over the past year. The booklet can be viewed and downloaded here (PDF).

 

We gather this evening in the wake of the resurrection.

In the empty tomb, we encounter the loss of Jesus –

 

There is no body to care for

No marker at which to mourn

Just this empty tomb

He is risen!

But He is not here

And when he appears, we do not recognise him.

Even as we celebrate the resurrection

It is ok to mourn Jesus

It is ok to feel his absence

And to worry that we will not see him again

And in this empty tomb,

we share in grief for all we have lost,

for those who have passed,

for all who accompanied them,

for all who were unable to accompany them,

and for all who have not had the opportunity

to mourn their loved ones as they had wished.
