We’re back – meeting and worshipping together!

Blessed with amazing sunshine, members from Churches Together in Crowthorne resumed ‘normal’ Good Friday activities in Crowthorne today, following the Covid-enforced two year pause.

We gathered for a short act of worship in the Baptist Church which included a powerful video “Mary did you know?” and a monologue read by Rev Kevin Mill describing Pilate’s struggle to write a report to his superiors following the dramatic events surrounding the Crucifixion.

Next, approximately 60 people joined the Walk of Witness, following a plain wooden cross to 5 different “stations” along the High St. At each station, we listened to a description from the Bible telling the story and were given a different object to focus on – a nail, a thorn (holly leaf), a piece of wood, a piece of curtain torn in two and finally a stone representing the stone rolled in front of Jesus’ tomb. It certainly made us think more deeply about the suffering that Jesus endured on that day.

As we closed, Rev Kevin Mills reminded us that whilst the events of Good Friday was not the end, we also needed to remember the Saturday – Jesus dead and buried – before celebrating the excitement of new life on Easter Sunday.

Thanks to everyone who took part, particularly the Methodist Church for hosting refreshments and Rev Kevin Mills and the Baptist Church for hosting the service and coordinating the Walk of Witness ‘Stations’.
