Weekly letter from St Luke's - 13 April 2024

Dear Parish Friends

For the third Sunday of Easter, the message of our gospel reading seems similar to last week as, in the gospel of Luke, the disciples don't initially recognise the risen Jesus. Well they do, but think him a ghost. Jesus convinces them otherwise by asking for, and eating, a piece of broiled fish! But, as was said to Thomas in the gospel passage last week, what about all those who don't see Jesus eating fish? How are we assured of the resurrection? The most powerful evidence is hinted at in the remainder of this week's gospel passage. Jesus opens their minds to the scriptures about himself, and also to the fact that 'repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations'. The book of Acts shows that this is indeed what the early church has done, and the church continues to do today, proclaiming 'Christ is risen! Alleluia!'

Our services are at the usual times of 7am and 9am, with the 9am services also be streamed on Zoom. The 9am service sheet and the week's Notice Paper are available via the links below.

Yours in Christ

Rev'd Timothy
