Use this page to guide you through the process and help you get your community involved in creating Stations of the Cross.
At the start of Lent, allocate each of the 14 themes to an individual or group in your church or community. Provide each group with a 3’ by 3’ piece of garden trellis (or a large empty picture frame from a second-hand shop.) Ask the groups to think about the theme and create something in response to it. During Holy Week, invite all the groups to bring their contributions together in an event or exhibition. Download a free event guide from our resources page.
Display poster-sized versions of the 14 Stations of the Cross in prominent places around your village, or in shop windows on your high street. Make a leaflet with a map or clues to where the stations are located. Offer the leaflet through people’s doors, or through the local school or post office counter. You could offer a reward for anyone who has completed the trail and located all the stations (or taken a selfie with each poster.)
Invite local drama or music groups to rehearse a song or piece of drama to accompany each of the stations. Suggestions are provided on our resources page. Bring all of the contributions together in a community concert on or near Good Friday.
Invite friends from the community to join in a series of home-based groups using the One Friday Study Guide. Alternatively, invite individuals to use the guide themselves on the fourteen days up to Good Friday. The Study Guide is available on this site, or can be downloaded from our resources page.
One Friday publicity materials including posters, banners and invitation cards are available from our resources section. These can be customised for your event.
When it is all coming together and you start to think publicity may be helpful here are some ideas.
A series of posters are available to customise, print or download. Please visit our store here.
There are many ways to take part in One Friday.
