Easter is about new life – writes Rev Peter Crumpler - it's when Christians celebrate Jesus Christ coming back to life and offering that new life to anyone who believes in him. No one can doubt the abundant life that exists within the churches of St Albans, Harpenden and across the district. Take a look at this listing to see how churches are marking Good Friday and celebrating the joy of Easter Day. Christians will be worshipping God on these momentous days in ways that demonstrate the life in our churches – a new life that we seek to share. You are warmly invited to visit your local church this Easter.
