The long silence of Saturday ends with a succession of powerful ancient symbols in the Vigil service which begins with the lighting of the Easter Fire under the Easter Tree in the valley of Bonnevaux. There is a procession with the Paschal candle up the valley to the barn where the other rituals will be celebrated: the singing of the Exulted, the blessing of the candle and selected biblical readings that summarise the journey from creation to its new creation in the resurrection of Christ.

The spirit of the liturgy is deep and quiet but also joyful as the music and mood of the participants will show. We look forward to celebrating it with you. At dawn the Sunday we gather to stand before the rising sun as the sign of the risen Christ inclusively illuminating all humanity and creation.
