For the people of Wesley Mission and many Sydneysiders, it’s become a beautiful tradition: the Easter Sunrise Service at the Sydney Opera House.

The annual 6am resurrection service, this year on April 16, sends a powerful message of life not just to those who attend but to Australians across the nation. It’s televised on Channel 9, live streamed on the internet, and simulcast on Sydney’s Hope 103.2 as well as Christian radio stations in Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.

Hosted by Wesley Mission’s superintendent Reverend Keith Garner, the service this year focusses on the theme of ‘Broken Made New’. Last year’s service included an interview with Sydney siege survivor Louisa Hope, while this year’s will feature performances by Aussie folk-roots band The Borderers, Golden Guitar winning duo Carter & Carter, and Wesley Mission Youth Worker Caitlin Roy.

The Sunrise service will also have an international reach this year broadcasting live on the Fiji Broadcasting Corporation (FBC) and throughout the Pacific Islands on TBN Pacific.

Those who attend need to be seated by 5:30am, and prebooked parking is recommended. You’ll be rewarded for your early rise with not only a beautiful worship service, but also hot cross buns and hot drinks on the Opera House forecourt in the morning sun, after the service.
