Easter Holytext

Experience the Easter Story in a brand new way.

Easter, direct to your phone!

Chaos has erupted in the Middle East. A carpenter turned teacher has divided, families and every community group. Anyone following him is under fatal threat. The movement’s now gone underground. And you can be part of it - with messages sent straight to your phone from five private contacts at the centre of the movement - via SMS & Facebook Messenger.

What is Easter Holytext?

Instead of just hearing about the events of Easter, we want you to be directly involved with Jesus' closest friends - right as the events unfold. From Palm Sunday, 25 March through to Easter Monday, 2 April you will receive text messages from different characters along with a link to a short Bible reading each day. Pictured here is an example from last year's Easter Holytext - and we've made it even better this year!


Meet the characters

Pushed to the extremes, five radically different followers of Jesus pour their hearts out to you. The movement’s under threat. An assassination attempt is underway to kill their leader. How will they ever survive? What can they do to protect him? Themselves? They used to hate each other, now they’re clinging to you and each other to survive.
