Canterbury Cathedral Easter Sermon

Read Archbishop Welby’s Easter Sermon, preached at Canterbury Cathedral on Easter Day 2018.

Readings: Acts 10:34-43, John 20:1-18

It is true of death.

On this day we celebrate the simplest of events, the historic reality of the resurrection of Jesus, on the third day, after his execution and burial. Read the full sermon >
