Stations of the Cross

March 2009

The children in Phase 3/4 prayed the Stations of the Cross which depict Jesus' journey to the cross and focus on his suffering and death.

It was a very moving representation through the use of Scripture, drama, music and poetry and prayer. Everyone who came to this special event was helped in their preparations for Holy week, particularly Good Friday.

Our journey ended with not with Jesus' death but his resurrection.

"He's not here for He is risen
He's not here we're glad to say
He's not here for He is risen
Jesus alive today."

8th Station - Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem.
