Digital Service Good Friday Devotion

Posted By : Anna Macham Thursday 9th April 2020
All are welcome to join us via our website and YouTube channel at 12.00 and then at 13.30 on Good Friday, 10 April 2020, for two digital services. 
 
The first of these, at12.00 is the Good Friday Devotion.  In this year’s devotions from the cross, the Venerable Dr Sue Groom poses the question ‘were you there?’ Readings from Luke’s gospel are interspersed with imaginative reflections from different characters, along with verses of the hymn ‘Were you here when they crucified my Lord?'
 
We are very grateful to Richard and Abigail Hooper for pre-recording the verses of the hymn, “Were you there when they crucified my Lord.”
