For Christians, Easter Sunday celebrates one of the greatest days in history – when Jesus, the Son of God, defeated death and rose from the grave. This page contains several prayers and resources that celebrate that moment.
Lower down on this page you’ll discover a diverse range of Christian prayers for Easter time, with Anglican, Catholic and traditional prayers, as well as Easter prayers for children, a reflection on the Resurrection by Pete Greig, a contemporary Easter poem, some good quotes for services or reflections, and an inspiring video for meditation. There’s also some bible verses about the crucifixion and resurrection of Christ.
In case you’re wondering when Easter is – it’s a movable feast – Easter Sunday can be celebrated as early as 22nd March and as late as 25th April on any given year. (Eastern Christianity works on a different calendar system and celebrates the festival later – varying between 4th April and 8th May). Here’s a site that lists all the dates for Easter Sunday until 2049!
