Our Easter Sunday Services are 630am and 930am Only. Here are the words for our 630am service so that you can follow on your cell phone or tablet. We will also print some copies for the 'grown ups' :) Table View Methodist Easter Sunday Sunrise Service 2017-04-18 Sunrise Service Welcome Welcome to our celebration of the resurrection. We welcome you in the name of Jesus which means that no matter who you are - or where you are in your faith and life journey you are welcome here; because Jesus welcomes you. The service will be conducted in English, isiXhosa and some other languages. This is a sign of our unity under Christ being united in different languages is an act of worship in itself. At some points in the service you might not understand the words, prayers or hymns - in those moments lift up your personal prayers to God. At other points there is translation provided - sing along, hum along, use your imagination to help you enter into the worship.

I want to encourage you to set up and advent wreath - in our house it is as simple as five candles on a little mirror with some flowers and leaves around them. Our plan is that we will light one more candle each week until Christmas and when we light those candles we'll talk about and pray about the theme of the week. What gives you hope?

Too often our family conversations focus on the negative; how can we embrace Christian hope this week? How can we have positive conversations about our faith. See if you can memor
