Nearly a hundred people drew to North Sands beach for the 6am Dawn Service on Easter Morning. The weather was clement and we even able to give gusto to 'Jesus Christ is Risen Today.'
This service was first done on the beach six years ago and quickly proved popular with locals and visitors. The early start has not daunted folks who come from near and far for the blessisng of the Paschal Candle and the proclamation that Christ is risen. In some ways this service is one half of another with a smaller gathering being held the night before at St Peter's house around a bonfire. After this service we were very grateful to Mark and Jane, the owners of the Winking Prawn, who host a breakfast.
