Tall ships (porthole)

Alleluia! Christ is risen!

He is risen indeed, Alleluia!

This has been something of a strange Easter. It's the first year I've not gone back to Horsham (which was already going to be different before all this went down, as they've ended the annual Italian festival), and the first year I've not been to some combination of Easter services.

St John's Fareham did manage an actual Easter celebration as well - the vicar hosted a "simple sharing of bread and wine" on Zoom, based on a passage from 1 Corinthians.

Trying to say the responses in sync with everyone else is quite tricky due to the latency involved!
