This Easter, we want to encourage you to explore ways to renew your connections and unite with the community to share in the love of Jesus’ sacrifice for his world and his people.

We have ways to unite with the community with your local Easter events guide, and devotions to help us focus on why we celebrate Easter and inspire us to love like Christ.

We also have a few giveaways to help you reconnect at work, and with your friends or family.

So continue reading for more information, and check back as we update our Renew, Unite & Love resources.

Renew connection

Connection is an important part of life, especially as we start to experience life together again after lockdowns.

Win a Volkswurst lunch for your workplace

As many workplaces have staff returning to in-person work, knowing how to renew those co-worker connections can be tough to navigate. But spending time together over lunch is one of the classic ways to get the workplace bonding back in business. And, our friends at Volkswurst – The Sausage for the People – want to help! They are giving you a chance to win a delicious catered lunch for your workplace.

Tell us what your workplace has been doing to reconnect after two years of working from home, and you could win!

Win a family pass to Taronga Zoo Sydney

Connect with family and friends this Easter with a day out at Taronga Zoo. We have your chance to win family passes (two adults, two children) in the lead up to Easter. Tune into Hope 103.2 to listen out for the secret sound, and head over to Hope 103.2’s Facebook and Instagram for more opportunities.

All competitions are subject to Hope 103.2’s Ts&Cs

Love like Christ

Acts 4:33 says; “With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. And God’s grace was so powerfully at work in them all”.

This Easter, we hope you can discover anew the power of Jesus’ love and find ways to bravely share your discoveries with those around you.

Real Hope’s The Road to the Cross devotion

Real Hope: The Road to the Cross – every year, Christians from around the world pause and reflect on the final hours of our Saviour’s life – to take time to be still and sit in the moments of pain, sacrifice, forgiveness and love written for us in the Gospels – so that we can understand the gravity and cost of the gift given to us through Christ.
