Elisha is Jeered - 2 Kings 2:23-24

The young people made fun of Elisha’s bald head and made fun of where he was going by saying, “Go on up, you bald head.” Obviously, God was not pleased with them as He sent two bears out of the woods to kill those who made fun of Elisha. God is not pleased when we tease or pick on others.

Epiphany - 04.01.24

The Christian Festival of Epiphany - Matthew 2:1-12

On 6 January each year Christians celebrate Epiphany, the visit of the wise men to the baby Jesus. The wise men brought special gifts, gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Gold is a gift fit for a king, Jesus as king of the world. Frankincense is a special fragrance used by a priest. Myrrh was a sweet-smelling liquid that was rubbed gently into the skin of someone who had died. It indicated that Jesus’ death would be important. One of the things that the festival of Epiphany reveals is that God doesn’t have favourites but welcomes people from any background and any nationality.

Candlemas - 01.02.24The Stories of Simeon and Anna - Luke 2:22-40
A little while after Jesus was born, Jesus was taken to the temple to be dedicated to God. At this ceremony He was named Jesus, the name the angel had told Joseph to give God’s Son. There was an old man in Jerusalem called Simeon. The Holy Spirit told Simeon to go into the temple. God had told him he would not die until he had seen the Saviour. When Simeon saw baby Jesus he was filled with joy. Simeon took Him in his arms and praised God that he had seen his Saviour. There was also a widow called Anna. She was eighty-four and worshipped in the temple all the time. When she saw Jesus, she also knew He was the promised Saviour of the world and gave thanks to God! Anna told everyone she met about Jesus that He was the answer to their prayers for salvation.

Zaccheus the Tax Collector - Luke 19:1-10

One day Jesus came to town and people gathered to hear what he had to say. Zacchaeus was very small, so he climbed a tree to see better. Jesus spotted him, called him down and said that he would come to his house that very day. The people were cross that Jesus was going to spend time with someone like Zacchaeus. Zacchaeus was very sorry for his behaviour and told Jesus that he would pay back all the money he had taken. Jesus forgave him. Christians believe that everyone is unique and valuable to God. Jesus saw that Zacchaeus was just as important as everyone else. Zacchaeus was then able to lead a better life and treat others the way God wanted him to.

Jesus Washes The Disciples Feet - John 13:14

"If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Most assuredly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master; nor is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them".  John 13:14–17

Resurrection Day

Outline of 

Holy Week: 14.3.24

An Outline of Christian Events to Anticipate during Holy Week - 2024
Palm Sunday: celebrating Jesus' entry into Jerusalem, greeted by people waving palm branches.
 

Maundy Thursday: Christians remember it as the day of the Last Supper, when Jesus washed the feet of his disciples and established the ceremony known as the Eucharist. The night of Maundy Thursday is the night on which Jesus was betrayed by Judas in the Garden of Gethsemane.


Good FridayOn this day, the crucifixion of Jesus and his death at Calvary is remembered. Good Friday is observed as a day of sorrow and penance. It's a day of mourning in the Church, and services are held to reflect on Jesus' pain and suffering.

 

Easter Sunday: Easter Sunday marks Jesus's resurrection. After Jesus was crucified on the Friday his body was taken down from the cross and buried in a cave tomb. Two days after, on the Sunday, a woman called Mary Magdalene and some of Jesus' disciples visited the tomb, only to find the boulder pushed to one side and the inside completely empty. Later that day, they found Jesus alive, and realised God had resurrected him.

Easter Service 2024 at St. Michael's Church

 

Welcome by Headteacher

Reading by Yr.4 - Palm Sunday: Jesus headed straight up to Jerusalem. When he got to Behtphage and Bathany at the mountain of Olives, he sent off two of the disciples with instructions: "Go to the village across from you. As soon as you enter, you'll find...
...right at the crest, where Mount Olives begins its decent, the whole crowd of disciples burst into enthusiastic praise over all the mighty works they had witnessed: Blessed is he who comes, the King in God's name! All's well in Heaven! Glory in high places!"

 

Reading by Yr.3 - Maundy Thursday: When it was time, he sat down, all the apostles with him, and he said, "You've no idea how much I look forward to eating this Passover meal with you before I enter my time of suffering... he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant written in my blood, blood poured out for you."

 

Reading by Yr.2 - Good Friday: It was about noon and the whole land became dark until three o'clock in the afternoon. There was no sun! The curtain in the Temple was torn into two pieces. Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Father, I give you my life." After Jesus said this, he died. The army officer there saw what happened. He praised God, saying, "I know this was a good man!"

 

Reading  by Yr.4 - Easter Day: Very early on the first day of the week, the women came to the tomb where Jesus's body was laid. They brought the spices they had prepared. They found that the stone had been rolled away...
...the men said to the women, "What are you looking for a living person here? This is a place for the dead. Jesus is not here. He has risen from death!"

"April Shower Days"

In these frequently rainy days of April it is an opportunity to reflect on perseverance as seeb ub the natural world around us.

 

Building Perseverance - Romans 5: 3-5: Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
