This Easter let Him take you on a journey
Throughout Holy Week, Wesley Mission will be hosting a range of community events.

On Palm Sunday, there will be a public procession re-enacting Jesus' triumphal entry into Jerusalem. It will commence at Phillip Street, Circular Quay and will proceed along the beautiful harbour foreshore.

On Tuesday 11th, the annual Easter lunch will be held. A delicious meal, great company and a performance by soloist Amanda Bailey while the meaning of Easter is contemplated.

The annual Easter Breakfast will be held on the Wednesday which connects professionals from many diverse backgrounds to interact over an enjoyable hot breakfast. Internationally acclaimed artist and award-winning musician, Colin Buchanan, will be special guest.

Good Friday is viewed as the most important day in the Christian calendar. Historically, the early church allocated every Friday for prayer and fasting. It was in the fourth century, though, that the church observed the Friday before Easter as a commemoration of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.

Jesus was unjustly accused by the very people he came to save, he submitted to punishment and death at the hands of the most fearsome militia of his time. His friends, frightened and confused, lingered among the crowds. Why didn't Jesus try and defend himself? Why didn't his friends fight for him? Wesley Mission will be staging a re-enactment of Christ's final hours followed by a public procession of the Journey of the Cross where everyone is invited. The journey commences at 1.30 pm from Martin Place Amphitheatre Sydney then along Pitt Street to the Wesley Centre to attend a special Good Friday service in the Wesley Theatre.

On Easter morning, as the sun rises over gorgeous Sydney Harbour, celebrate Easter Sunday in memory of the first Resurrection morning, at the Sydney Opera House.

There will be an address by the Rev Keith Garner, CEO of Wesley Mission, as well as special guests and live music. The Easter sunrise service will be broadcast live nationwide on Channel 9 and simulcast on Sydney's HOPE103.2. Afterwards, there will be delicious hot cross buns and warm drinks on the Opera House forecourt.
