Good Friday Liturgy

We come together as a community for three hours on Good Friday afternoon, firstly to hear reflections on the way of the cross and then to proclaim and give thanks for all Jesus did on the cross. The liturgy includes the singing of the Passion gospel which is a particular focus of this very reflective service.
