The Good News of Holy Week and Easter
The Good News of Holy Week and Easter were celebrated at the end of last week at The King's Church of England Academy. Worship Assemblies focused on the theme of 'Suffering and the Glory', both in the Academy and by each Year Group attending a service at St Thomas' Church.
They remembered that Jesus came into Jerusalem riding a donkey as the people celebrated with palm branches. Jesus humbly washed the disciple's feet at the Last Supper, and then prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane as he faced his time of suffering and death. In St Thomas's Church, Rev. Iain Baker explained that justice had to be satisfied - but Jesus, out of love for us, took upon himself the punishment our sins deserve when he died upon the cross - as we remember on Good Friday. But the suffering he endured was to bring him glory, as he rose again from the dead and appeared to his disciples on Easter morning.
May we all know more of that glory for ourselves as we celebrate Holy Week and Easter.
