Good Friday Worship

15th April 2022, led by The Minister

Call to Worship
From the busy-ness of our lives
we have come here on a day that is different.
In the midst of the world
which holds the promise of spring and new life,
we have come to share a story of betrayal and execution.

Come and hear the tale,
come and share the tragedy,
come and embrace the darkness.
God of Light, God of Shadow, in our time together today,
keep us aware of your presence in the darkness,
help us to see meaning in this terrible story,
and keep the fire of hope alive in our hearts.
