Bishop Stephen’s Easter Morning Sermon

Posted: 18 April 2017

In his Sermon for Easter Morning, Stephen Cottrell, the Bishop of Chelmsford, said that the central event of human history we must recall is the passion and death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

"We are sent out by the risen Christ to share the message of Easter joy, which is not only the message that there is life beyond this life," continued the Bishop, "but the great biblical vision that the resurrection of Christ is not so much the promise that we go to heaven, but that in Christ heaven comes to us and we are called to work with God to make that petition in the Lord's prayer that we say each day real: your kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven."
