Gill Dascombe, Vice-President of the Methodist Conference,said: "Easter is the major festival of the Christian faith, and itshope is our greatest gift to the world. Through the drama of HolyWeek, we witness events which touch the deepest parts of the humanheart: from fame and celebration to doubt, fear, betrayal, cruelty,injustice and death. Yet all of these are interwoven with theprofoundest bonds of love, which ultimately is supreme. The messageof Easter is for everyone."
