 Good Friday 

....a typical Good Friday for at least the last twenty years amongst the Churches in Thornhill would start with a morning with Kids from our churches meeting at Thornhill Methodist Church to make Crafts and hear the Easter Story - in word , play and music. This was followed by a short service when we were joined by Adults after which we processed to The Cross and erected a large Wooden Cross. Everyone was given a Palm Cross and asked to pray for the person whose name was on it. .. well not this year no Methodist Church and Lockdown.

There would be short services at Whitley in the Morning and Meditation Service at Thornhill in the afternoon

Thank You Elaine-------

For the jews today is Passover. For many years on this day we held a Christian Passover evening which involved a Jewish Passover Meal and Holy Communion.Very soon it will be the time for Ramadan for our Muslim Friends. So this is a Holy Time for many people.  We have always traditionally held a similar event with a meal and Communion. Well we cannot have either today because of the Pandemic. A little reminder below.

This is a quite appropriate song recorded virtually - it is our Rector's favourite too.

If you are in the mood listen to Hosanna from Jesus Christ Superstar. The film is on You Tube on Good Friday at 1900


'Do Not be afraid'  is a song we sing at Communion sometimes - you might like to listen to the song
