Easter service brings hope, encouragement

Kingsley Anglican Church parish secretary Bruce Herriman said guests were fed inspiring words and uplifting music, followed by coffee and hot cross buns.

As the darkness turned into light, the service was held to celebrate Easter and its message.

It was open to everyone, and those who had lost a loved one recently or had someone with a memorial at Pinnaroo were encouraged to attend.

After a 15-year hiatus, St Anselm decided to revisit the service with the assistance of the Kingsley Church of Christ, Mareena Purslowe and Associates and the Metropolitan Cemeteries Board.

�Easter tells us three important things,� Kingsley Anglican Church�s Reverend Gillian Rookyard said.

�Firstly, we celebrate that life comes through death, secondly, we celebrate that light pierces the darkness.

�Thirdly, we celebrate that hope replaces despair.�
