Region 1 - Easter at Brixton Centre

Easter was celebrated at Brixton Sai Centre on Easter Sunday, 31 March 2013. A number of regular worshippers, aged 4 to 64 and more and coming from a variety of faiths, congregated for this joyous occasion. A mixture of hymns and regular Sai group devotional songs were sung. The choice of beautiful, nostalgic hymns (including "My God loves me", "The Lord is my shepherd” and “Jesus Christ is risen today") really brought home the true meaning of Easter and the implications of the resurrection of Christ. Song books were provided and song numbers were listed on a board enabling everyone to sing their hearts out for all the songs.

The songs were followed by a short talk from a Group 1 SSE student, Leanna Iyavoo, on the events that lead up to Easter and the significance of the festival. After the programme, as well as the regular monthly study circle on Sathya Sai Speaks Volume 1, everyone – young and old - enjoyed some mini Easter eggs.

For the third year in a row, the Sathya Sai Baba Centre of Brixton held an Easter Egg collection for the children of the Royal Marsden Hospital, Surrey Branch. The Royal Marsden specialises in cancer treatment, meaning all would-be recipients unfortunately suffer from this terrible disease.

The staff were so surprised and pleased to see the gifts: literally dozens of eggs had been kindly given by members of the Centre, including SSE students, meaning two of them had to come to carry them all. We hope it was an egg-stra special Easter for the children!
