Penrallt Baptist Church

Online Service: Easter Sunday 4th April 2021 (10:30am)

This week's service was an all-age communion service held live on Zoom. The service itself was not recorded but here are some resources you may find useful.

Here a pre-recorded version of the main talk (illustrating the meaning of Easter with help from a teabag, a pair of scissors and a box of matches).

An Easter Spinner

Here is an activity suitable for children of all ages.

You will need scissors, card, a split pin (or a sharp pencil and some play dough) and a copy of the Easter Spinner PDF craft sheets that you can download here:

  1. Print the craft sheets (2 sheets)
  2. Cut out the circes
  3. On the Easter circle, cut along the curved line.
  4. Colour the circles
  5. Place the Easter circle over the one with pictures and secure with a split pin if you have one or put a sharp pencil through the middle into a piece of play dough
  6. Move the top circle around to re-tell the Easter story

Here are a pair of videos telling the Good Friday and Easter story from the perspective of the apostle Peter, written and narrated by the South Wales poet Dai Woolridge (we used these videos in our Good Friday and Easter services respectively):

Part 1: Good Friday

Part 2: Easter Sunday

And here are the three songs used for this year's Cytûn (Churches Together in Bangor) Easter Service, which were recorded by Penrallt's musicians:

Low In The Grave He Lay

Crist A Orchfygodd

This is a Welsh translation of Thine be the glory

I Cast My Mind (O Praise The Name)
