An Easter message from the Bishop of Durham

The Bishop of Durham has encouraged people to have hope in his message for Easter.

The Right Reverend Paul Butler has said that even though the country was in a "difficult situation" he thinks there can be hope for the future.

Mr Butler said:

This Easter I am reminded that, for the disciples, hope was crushed on Good Friday but the resurrection gave them real hope, hope for the future.

We are in a difficult situation as a nation at present - and indeed as a continent - and I want us to focus on hope for the future.

– Rt Rev Paul Butler, Bishop of Durham
