Christians braced the cold on Sunday morning for the annual Easter sunrise service.

The purpose thereof was to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Organised by Barberton Methodist Church, the service was held in the garden behind the local museum.

As part of the sunrise celebration, the congregation brought hot cross buns, tea and coffee.

The service was led by Sheila Richards, the deacon of the Methodist Church of Southern Africa. Richards reminded them of the day Jesus was resurrected and how his disciples reacted.

She also asked the guests what their views were. Her closing message was one of encouragement.

“This is a new day, do not be afraid. Jesus has risen. Even now He is going before you into the streets, homes, offices, markets, prisons and hospitals.

“Go from this place knowing that you have a new life. Share your life and give your life. Go and tell the world that Jesus is alive,” said Richards.

After the early-morning garthering, guests shared a meal together while socialising. They then went to the last service of the Easter week.
