It has been a tradition for Christians to walk up Chapel Hill to experience the dawn of Easter morning. After a gap of two years it is wonderful that we are able to meet this year in our simple act of worship. We meet in the lay-by on the Haslingfield side of the crest of the hill. It is near to the ancient footpath which dates back to the 15th century pilgrimage route.
We simply sing a hymn and offer a reading or a simple prayer together at 6.00am after watching the sunrise. Sometimes it is spectacular, sometimes dull and mysterious.
I enjoy starting out early to hear the dawn chorus. With the threat of the railway cutting through our ancient hill, it is very poignant this year.
