    12noon - 3pm on Good Friday at St Peter's Church, High St, Shaftesbury

    Together we mark the three hours that Jesus spent on the cross before he died. You are welcome to join us for parts or all of our three hours' devotions.

    12 noon (or as soon as we are able after the Churches Together Walk of Witness) - All-Age Service: a short informal service reflecting on Good Friday suitable for ages 0-100+

    1pm Silent Prayer: we pray together in silence through the second hour on the cross. You are welcome to come and go quietly during the hour if you wish. We have Bibles you can use to read the scriptures as a guide to prayer, or bring your own Bible or Lent book with you if that will help you pray.

    2pm Good Friday meditations: A quiet, reflective service in the hour when we remember Christ's death. Time for silence, readings, hymns and reflections.
