Easter College Celebrations 2021

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time."

Easter is a very special time of year for our Christian community, as we reflect on the magnitude of what our Lord Jesus Christ did for us on the cross through his death and resurrection, bringing eternal hope to all who believe in Him. This year, King's created a special Easter video with a message from our Chaplains and a song sung by our King's choirs. The video was shared with students in small classroom services on the last day of school. Every King's student was also offered a commemorative 2021 Easter shirt to wear on the last day of school. For those who were not at school on the last day, these can be collected from Student Services reception (near the Uniform Shop) early in Term 2.

"For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me."
Easter cross
I will come to Earth and die
To take away your sin.
I will remove your brokenness
And place My life within.

I will face the whipping post
And My body I will yield.
I will shed My blood for you,
For through it you are sealed.

I will take what you deserve
And I will pay what's due.
I will endure the blood-stained cross
For the joy of knowing you.

I will purify your past
And make you white as snow.
I will forgive your future wrongs
And lead you where to go.

I will free you from yourself
And from your selfish pride.
I will always be with you
And never leave your side.
I will keep you safe from harm
And from the Devil's plans.
I will walk you through each test
And hold you in My hands.

I will give Myself to you
And power you'll receive.
I will raise the dead to life
If you will just believe.

I will show you mysteries
Concealed within My Word.
I will speak into your heart
Truths you've never heard.
I will give all this to you,
All this and so much more.
The only thing that you must do
Is surrender Me your all.
