Good Friday at Church – 22 April 2011


Despite lacking in the artistic talents of former St Luke’s vicar Richard Holroyd, the annual Good Friday Activity Morning went ahead, led by creative congregation-member Carole Baughan.

This year, despite a noticeable shortage of children, we made chocolate crispy cakes, Easter boxes, and walked on a path of footprints.

Revd Terry Robinson, who led the footprint activity pointed out the symbolic representation of her washing the feet of the punters after their dunk in the paint.

This year, the big activity was to make a large cross. On one side, it is plastered in the sadder headlines of recent newspapers, whilst the other (to be revealed on Easter Day) is a beautiful design in warm colours.
