Sunrise gathering in Wirksworth
Members of Wellspring Church in Wirksworth, Derbyshire, rose early for an Easter sunrise gathering at a 21st century stone circle
The gathering took place at 6.40am on Easter Sunday (1 April) at the Star Disc in Stoney Wood. Visual artist Aidan Shingler created the Star Disc in 2011 as a celestial amphitheatre, a 'temple without walls'.
'It was an ideal place to celebrate the resurrection of Christ at the rising of the sun,' noted Ingrid Keith, the church's communications trustee.
Worship was led by the Revd Jenny Few.
