Good Friday: Devotion at the Foot of the Cross

Good Friday: Devotion at the Foot of the Cross

Friday 15th April, 2022, at 1:00 pm

We gather on this most solemn of days to retell in words and music the story of the last hours of Christ’s life and his death on the Cross.

The central section of our Three Hour Good Friday observance this year is a reflection on the Passion narrative in St Luke’s Gospel, focussing on three of the themes within St Luke’s account of the Passion of Christ: Isolation; Humiliation; and Innocence.

Each section of this Gospel narrative is explored through reflection, prayer, and silence, alongside some wonderful Passiontide hymns and instrumental music.

The Three Hour Devotion begins at 12pm with a performance of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater and concludes with a performance of Stainer’s Crucifixion at 2pm. You are warmly invited to attend all or any part of the three hours.
