Good Friday- Walk of Witness

Easter week is much more than just bunnies and chocolate eggs; it’s where we prepare for understanding what Easter really means. Gnosall Churches Walk of Witness on Good Friday starts from St. Lawrence Church at 2.00pm. This time is spent at stations of the cross around the village, reflecting on passages from the Bible and singing Easter hymns. We try to understand a bit more of what it must have been like for Jesus, struggling to carry His cross after being beaten and spat at. People shouting ‘crucify’ when just days before on Palm Sunday, they cheered Him, waved palm branches and shouted Alleluia. So if you see us around the village, following someone carrying a cross, do come and join us. Jesus gave His life for us all!

On trying ........

Broken to be Shared.

It’s March the 10th and time for me to put our page together. My daily reading notes today were titled,’Broken to be Shared’. This gave me something I want to share with you. In August last year, my younger sister had an accident. She fell down some steps and broke her wrist, her leg in several places and her ankle. She was air lifted to the Q.E. Hospital in Birmingham, where she had to undergo a seven hour operation followed a few days later by an eleven hour operation to put plates into her leg so the bones would hopefully knit together. She had several problems, one of them being infection, but she is a very strong Christian and so many people were praying for her. Two weeks ago, she had to return to the Q.E. for another operation but no healing had taken place and two days later she had to have her leg amputated. She has been so brave, sharing her faith with everyone who comes on the ward. One of the patients asked if she could go with her to the hospital church service on Sunday morning. The love of God shown to her through her many friends has been amazing, one even travelling from Craven Arms on the train to visit her. I phoned her this morning after reading my notes, to ask if she would mind me writing about her experience. Her reply was ’Of course you can, the Lord is keeping me here for a reason, there’s lots more work to be done.’ She has truly been ‘Broken to be Shared’ I’m so proud of my little Sister. Gwen

Easter Poem.

Not my will but yours Jesus said

As He sought His Fathers Grace.

The anguish of what lay ahead

Was written on His Face


Their Spirits so entwined as one

He knew what it must be

To save each one of us from sin

He must give His Life for you and me.



A Prayer from the Methodist Church Prayer Handbook


Grant us grace, O God, to take your Son for our Redeemer; His life for our example, His word for our rule, His Spirit for our guide, His wounds for our healing And His cross for our salvation, that He may take Possession of our hearts, now and forever.


Jeremy Taylor (1613-1657)

The birth of Christ brought God to man, The cross of Christ brings man to God. HAPPY EASTER
