Blessed is the man that endureth temptation for when he is tried he shall receive the crown of life.

Festival of Hope – make a cross

For the Festival of Hope on Good Friday we’re asking people to make crosses that we can display in church.  We would love as many people as possible to contribute to this.

Your cross design just needs to say something about hope.  It could be because the colours you paint it look hopeful to you, or the design you draw on it  includes hope symbols, or it’s about a situation you hope will change…the options are limitless!

Crosses should ideally be at least A3 in size, but can be as large as you like, in 2D or 3D.

Crosses can be made out of anything – card, paper, fabric, wood, recycling, any thing at all!

Make a Cross for the Festival of Hope

Once you have made your cross please drop it off at church so that we can have it on display in time for Good Friday at the Festival of Hope.

Full details of all Holy Week and Easter services can be found here.

Sunday 3rd April 2022 – Extravagant Love

John 12:1-8

This Sunday we learn of how Mary shows extravagant love by pouring expensive perfume on the feet of Jesus, and are challenged to think about how we can show extravagant love to Jesus.
