On a cold night in Stockholm, the warmth and joy of the Easter faith is shared

During the Great Vigil of Easter, undaunted by the sub-zero temperatures (but blankets were provided for those who wished), the congregation of St Peter and St Sigfrid's Church in Stockholm gathered outside the Church for the lighting of the new fire, and then processed in to the warm Church behind the paschal candle held high by the Chaplain, the Revd Nick Howe.

11 candidates were confirmed during the service.

Christ is risen!
