Easter Dawn Vigil


By Elaine Bardwell - Posted on 12 March 2018

Time: 
01/04/2018 - 06:00 - 07:30
Location: 
St Michael and All Angels' Church, New Marston, Oxford

 

At first light - this year 6am - we gather in our Garden of Rest beside our church to light our Easter fire and thus begin the ancient  ritual which takes us from darkness, through a series of readings and songs to the Gospel Easter light. We renew our baptismal calling at the font and then around the altar celebrate the first Eucharist of Easter and receive our Communion before that final special Easter Dismissal which marks the end of the worship we began on Thursday night. A well earned breakfast follows.
