Will you be giving or receiving an Easter Egg this year?

I'm sure the chocolate lovers amongst us will!

Here's a reminder of what the Easter Egg means for us as Christians...

New Life

Eggs are a symbol of birth and new life! Christians believe that Jesus was born as a baby on earth, God in Human form. Jesus was sent as an example for us and to help us to be friends with God.

What's inside?

Traditionally Easter eggs are hollow inside. Christians use this as a reminder of the tomb where Jesus was placed after he died. A large stone was placed in front of the tomb. When is friends visited the tomb, the stone had been rolled away and Jesus was gone.

Christians believe that Jesus had come back to life! Jesus' friends saw him walking and talking three days after his death, then he went to heaven.

A gift for everyone

Christians believe that because Jesus died and came back to life there is hope for everyone. We are all invited to be a friend of God and to one day be with Him in heaven.

John 3.16

God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son.
Anyone who believes in him will not die but will have eternal life.
