shofarThere are four Sunrise Services taking place as Easter morning dawns across the borough.

Transformation Thurrock encourages all believers to rise early to celebrate together the fact of the victory of Jesus Christ over death: HE IS RISEN!

Bring your bread and wine; bring your shofars; bring your prayers, scriptures, hymns and psalms; bring your instruments; bring your anointing oil, salt and mustard seeds. Worship and praise the Lord of lords and King of kings on the day we commemorate the most significant event in the entire history of Planet Earth.

“Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever!” Revelation 1:17-18.
