Hundreds of worshippers have packed into Derby Cathedral for the traditional Easter Sunday service.

The Rt Revd Dr Alastair Redfern, Bishop of Derby, held this morning's celebration of Jesus' resurrection.

Speaking ahead of the service, the Bishop released his annual Easter message, part of which explained the sequence of events at this important stage in the Christian calendar.

Easter is not just an event. More, Easter is a process. The Christian understanding of Easter flows through a powerful sequence. Maundy Thursday: a supper with friends. Good Friday: betrayal, torture, death.

Holy Saturday: a space of waiting while hope struggles with despair and light seems to be extinguished by darkness. Easter Sunday: Jesus risen from the tomb, hope and light in triumph – not simply in this world, but as ingredients of a glory beyond our little universe.
