Web Colour - Gold - Easter

13 Apr 07

The colour is Gold.  


"Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!"


The season is Easter – 40 days until Ascension – 10 more days then Pentecost.

The season begins with the lighting of the church at Easter Eve and the renewal of our Baptism promises, We sing the great Easter Hymns, decorate the church and declare to one another,

“Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia!”

We don’t just celebrate at Easter, we continue throughout the Easter Season. At Ascension we continue our celebrations and we rejoice with all God’s people, that Jesus ascended into Heaven to be our Lord and King.

Personal Profile
Rev. John Langlands

 Rev. John Langanlds 

It is with great pleasure that I would like to welcome you to St Laurence.  Frances, my wife, and I have received a very warm welcome ourselves, so you will not be disappointed when you visit St Laurence.  I am also the Curate of the other churches in Ansley and Arley – St John’s, St Michael’s and St Wilfrid’s.

Being in a rural and farming area in the north part of Coventry Diocese is like coming home for us.  A number of years ago I pastored a church in rural Norfolk which was mainly surrounded by arable farms with some pigs and chickens.  The strong sense of community life was something very special.  This should be particularly valued in these days when many folk live such individual, separate and often lonely lives. 

We have just had hot off the press a visiting card which I hope reflects what our church stands for: ‘You will not walk alone.  Together we are with you on life’s journey’.  Over these next weeks, months and years, I hope we can get to know you better and that you will find Frances and myself not just ‘churchy’ people but friends as well, who enjoy life and plenty of laughter!
