Diocese of Portsmouth

Holy Week and Easter 2021

The Easter story is at the heart of the Christian faith. On Good Friday, we remembered that Jesus died, sacrificing himself so we could be forgiven for the things we do wrong. On Easter Sunday, we celebrate that he rose again from the dead. We tell the joyful stories of the women and men who discovered the empty tomb, and celebrate the final proof that Jesus was and is sent by God to save us.

Across our diocese, churches are hosting all kinds of services and events to help us remember what happened 2,000 years ago. This year, churches are likely to offer a mixture of physical worship services that you can attend, and digital worship that you can watch from home. Either way, we hope you will appreciate the depth of Jesus's sacrifice on the cross, and the joy of his resurrection. See below for details. We also love to share stories about how God has influenced and transformed lives in our diocese. Read those stories here.
