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.

 

A new member of the ministry team
