The Colours of Sunday


'The Colours of Sunday' is an intergenerational service that uses colour to describe the events of Easter Sunday. Colours convey emotions, and help us to engage emotionally with the events of Easter, in ways that stay with us long after the service:

· Purple: darkness – a dark purple or blue for the dark sky at the time of Jesus’ death
· White: the linen that Jesus’ body was wrapped in
· Gold: the colour of dawn and the colour of the angels
· Grey: the colour of the road to Emmaus
· Orange: the colour of fire - Didn’t we feel on fire as he conversed with us on the road, as he opened up the Scriptures for us? Luke 24


Here are all the resources you need to run your own service. If you use this material, we would love to hear how it goes. What worked well for your church? Any tweaks or suggestions?
