The Story of the Cross Walk
The Story of the Cross (what is known as 'Stations of the Cross') have formed part of Christian devotion around Easter for many centuries because they enable us to engage actively with the path of suffering walked by Jesus. They originated when early Christians visited Jerusalem and wanted to follow literally in the footsteps of Jesus, tracing the path from Pilate’s house to the Cross. They would pause for prayer and devotion at various points. Eventually those pilgrims brought the practice back to their home countries and ever since then Christians of differing traditions have used this form of devotion.
To continue to this ancient practice we have created COVID secure walk (download map below) which includes a series of QR codes at different points, which you can scan to reveal a part of the story of the cross and a prayer.
We hope you enjoy the walk and discover OR rediscover the power and significance of the story of the cross for you today.
