GOOD FRIDAY

WHY “GOOD” ? Some say that ‘Good’ is our mispronunciation of ‘God’ .. i.e. GOD’S FRIDAY Others says that it means ‘pious’ or ‘holy’. Either way, it’s the day before the Passover Feast (Jewish ‘Sabbath’ on the Saturday) when Jewish Law meant that no one should do anything resembling ‘work’ - and that would include executing Jesus ! So it had to be done quickly, and his body removed before night fell - and the Sabbath started. To commemorate this tragic day, we are holding a children’s workshop in church, starting at 9:30am. Then, at 11:15am, we will join together for a short “Worship 4 All” service. In the evening 7:30pm we will meet for a service of hymns and readings called               ONE FRIDAY    24 hours - 14 events - one Friday       that echoes through history and illustrated by the art work of water-colourist Jenny Hawke Do try to come
