The Raising of the Cross

The Christians of Ponteland united on the Village Green in front of St Mary's Church to remember the Crucifixon of Christ.  Members of the four Ponteland churches joined in the singing of two hymns,
There was a Green Hill Faraway and When I survey the Wondrous Cross.  Revd Ian Suttie read the account of the events on the first Good Friday and Revd Peter Bareham addressed the crowd, reminding them that the just as we were in the midst of people going about their business and pleasure so it had been when Christ was nailed to the cross.  The good weather encouraged worshippers to linger and chat before they moved on to enjoy the remainder of the holiday.
