Stations of the Cross
When we follow the stations of the cross we enter into the passion of Jesus, and this helps us to meditate on His suffering and on how this reflects in our own lives. We focus on Jesus, with all those involved with Him, and on ourselves. We think of His faith, and of His love for us. We repent of our sins and remember all the evil that led to His death, and how it still exists to this day.

The Stations of the Cross were designed and executed by Miriam and Bill Longstaff, both very talented members of St John’s. They are very much in keeping with the simple interior. The text accompanying each Station of the Cross was written by the Revd Roddy Shaw of St John's. A booklet detailing The Stations of the Cross has been produced, and is available from the Church. The suggestion to produce this booklet came from The Revd Dr Anne Tomlinson, Provincial Local Collaborative Ministry Officer, who was greatly impressed by them. We do hope that you will also be inspired.
