Easter messages from Sydney Christian leaders

In a world marked by doubt, despair and darkness, Easter hope offers the promise of a better future, a future in God’s hands, a future shaped by the light of an empty tomb. – Rev Stu Cameron

Richard Schwedes – NSW Assistant Bishop, Lutheran Church of Australia

Richard is also the minister at St Paul’s Lutheran, Darlinghurst. He says the cross that Jesus dies upon is not the end of God’s life-giving story. The resurrection points to an everyday hope we can hold to, into eternity.

Paul Bartlett – State President, ACC NSW and ACT

Paul says that Jesus’ unique blend of divine and human can powerfully shape our everyday lives – not only on the Easter long weekend.

David Maher – Presbyterian Church NSW

David says the simple truths of Easter are not only life giving, but they are also life changing. He suggests that beyond the Easter long weekend our lives can be transformed by the hope, joy and example of Jesus.

Phil Dooley – Global Senior Pastor, Hillsong

Phil says Easter is a vivid reminder of what our lives should be anchored in, every day. Even in the face of ongoing allegations about Hillsong leadership and governance issues, Phil said the focus needs to be on the Saviour who wants to bring everlasting life to you – Jesus.

Kanishka Raffel – Sydney Anglican Archbishop

Kanishka says the physical resurrection of Jesus offers real, eternal peace, hope and joy.
