Easter is a special time of the year.

Chocolate eggs, time off to spend with friends and family but most importantly to remember and celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus.

Despite first appearances, the Easter story is a good news story. Easter is all about love, forgiveness and new life for everyone.

Jesus came to rescue and restore humanity and that’s worth celebrating.
