Stations of the Cross

‘We love because he first loved us’

Monday 3rd April, Tuesday 4th April, Wednesday 5th April, 11am-2pm

Do drop in for our Holy Week Prayer Stations and enjoy the silence of this beautiful building.  Around the church will be simple illustrations of the Stations of the Cross. There will be daily written guides should you wish to use them.

The stations of the cross has been a key part of the church’s devotion for many centuries, allowing us to meditate on Jesus’ final path of suffering. The stations of the cross emerged from the early pilgrimage of Christians to Jerusalem seeking to follow the exact path of Jesus from Pilate’s house to the cross. As they did this, they would pause to pray at various points, and, over time, these stopping points were brought back to their home countries and made up the ‘Stations of the Cross’ – a powerful tradition that we continue today.

Maundy Thursday

‘Do this in remembrance of me’

Thursday, 6th April 7pm followed by a vigil

Maundy Thursday is the day when we gather together to remember Jesus’ Last Supper and reflect on what it meant for him to wash the feet of his disciples.  This service will be a service of Holy Communion, with the opportunity for feet washing should you wish to participate in it.
Then, the service moves to the Stripping of the Altars – a traditional way of entering into the despair of Good Friday, and this will be followed by vigil where we can reflect and pray as we sit in silence at the foot of the cross.

Good Friday

Special Needs?

We know it can be daunting going to a new place if you have special needs. We are committed to making our church as inclusive as possible, so please do get in touch to discuss how we might enable St George’s to be a place to be for you.

First time?

Many of the traditional services in Holy Week, as we journey with Christ to the cross, have been formed over centuries and enable us to connect with people who have gone before us.  But they also speak into our present, and give us hope and sustenance for the future, even if sometimes the language might be a bit different to what we are used to. If this is your first time in church, don’t worry if you’re not sure what to do, when to stand etc – you are welcome even if you just sit and take it all in! Most importantly, do feel very welcome at the end to ask questions regarding the symbolism, words and actions of each service.
