GOOD FRIDAY

Good Friday on Brent Hill

 

As usual on Good Friday there was a procession with a cross from the middle of South Brent to the top of Brent Hill. A large number of people (and a good few dogs) processed, stopping at several places for a Bible reading, hymn and prayer, as we reflected on Jesus' crucifixion.

Starting to emerge from lockdown

 

Most of our churches have been closed during the Coronavirus outbreak apart from Buckfastleigh, which has served as a resource centre throughout. Now most are open for private prayer, and some are starting to open for Sunday worship in church.
