Angel greets women at open tombInteractive Easter

For three years Churches Together in Daventry has presented the events of Holy Week to children from local  junior schools.  The children are encouraged to ask questions as they take part in the events of last week of Jesus' life.  Thirty children at a time joined the crowd that welcomed Jesus into Jerusalem, and then, in groups of ten, they watched as Mary anointed Jesus' feet, they saw Jesus, acting as a servant, washing Peter's feet, they shared in the last meal Jesus had with his friends and then heard how Jesus was betrayed and crucified and died.  Finally, the children saw the joy of the women, as on the first Easter Day, they learned that Jesus was no longer dead, but had risen and is alive in the world and in his church today.
