Easter Journeys – Stations of the Cross and Resurrection

Following the success of our Online 9 Lessons and Carols service last Christmas a group of us has got together to provide an online experience for Easter using the traditional Stations of the Cross and Stations of the Resurrection and presenting them in a new format using new media. Read more about the origins of the Stations of the Cross and Resurrection here.

Each ‘station’ will be provided as a blog post on this site – so feel free to share those that have an impact on you on your social networks and comment on them with your own reflections. We hope this will be a really special corporate act of online worship and provide a space for people to reflect over a busy weekend.

Follow the stations on Twitter at @easterjourneys and please retweet and use the hashtag #easterjourneys

View all the stations on a Pinterest board here (please repin and share with your friends!)
