We are excited to join David Pott on Easter Sunday with Sing Resurrection! This is an international initiative to have Christians gather “together” on Easter at 10am to sing Jesus Christ is Risen Today and Thine Be The Glory. Through the many connections that David has, he will be in 14 radio interviews during this process in church communities throughout Britain and Ireland. Help spread the word about this creative and joyful initiative that connects all of us during this time of social distancing and isolation. Share on your social media networks! We need this unity this Easter!
“Easter Sunday 2020 will be an Easter Sunday like no other before it. We cannot sing the great Easter hymns inside our churches, but we can sing them in this way…
At 10am on Easter Sunday 12 April 2020, we call on all who want to celebrate the resurrection to go outside and sing Jesus Christ is Risen Today and Thine be the Glory at the top of their voices! You could sing them…
- in your garden
- in your street
- like an Italian from your balcony!
- on your permitted daily walk in your local park
- by the sea or by a lake
…all of course keeping safe spatial distance.
If you are planning a live streaming service, why not also include these hymns at 10am, so that your viewers can step outside and sing at the same time.”
We hope you will join this “counter-infection of hope and joy” initiative and feel connected to the Church as the body of Christ this Easter!

What of us, in these (formerly united) states, across the Atlantic from you in Ireland & the uk? <3
The idea of posting this is in the hope that people in the U.S. will do the same and I have already heard o some that are planning to join in. David Pott who initiated this lives near Durham. The main Christian radio station in the UK – Premier has agreed to play both the hymns at 10 am on Easter Sunday morning so people will have something to sing along with. Secondly it is all been translated into Welsh and the person who did the translation is a member of an organisation to do with Welsh hymn singing which has a huge membership and they will all be informed.
