Find a path to hope for your life this Easter

Easter is a reminder to us that there is hope after hardship. On Good Friday, Jesus was betrayed, trialled, beaten, rejected, and hung to die on a cross. His followers were confused, afraid and … hopeless.

But on Sunday, a path to hope was revealed. Jesus rose back to life. His victory over death – and all the pain and hurt he experienced – gives us hope for our lives. Jesus offers to help us in our times of trouble, he gives us purpose for lives today, and a promise for the future. We believe we can all find a path to hope – one we can hold on to, to help us through any situation we may face.

This Easter, our prayer is that you would find hope.
