Good Friday Service 2014

Good Friday is one of the major landmarks of the Christian calendar, signifying a moment when it was thought all hope was lost. It was the same moment that demonstrated the power of faith, and nearly 2,000 years later, is still viewed with much the same reverence as it was from the moment the significance was understood.

Good Friday traditionally marks one of the most crucial moments in Christian history: the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is generally accepted that it was on Friday that Jesus died on the cross after being arrested, whipped and interrogated. It is included in a line of holidays that also includes Ash Wednesday, Lent, Palm Sunday and Holy Saturday, which all lead up to the celebration of Easter Sunday and the resurrection of Christ.

All our welcome to join us tonight, 18 April 2014, 8:30pm at The Father’s House for our Good Friday Tenebrae Service. Stations of the Cross will be made available after the service.

All our Holy Week celebrations are open to all. Click here to find out more. If you’re on Facebook, the public event page is here.

Tomorrow, we celebrate Palm Sunday or Passion Sunday, commemorating Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem.

One of the things we’ll be doing is to fold palm leaves into the shape of a cross during service today. So, here’s a helpful video as well as step-by-step instructions!

Immediately following Palm Sunday, we head into our Holy Week celebrations, culminating with Good Friday before we celebrate Christ’s resurrection on Easter.
