Good Friday 2009
Date: 10 April 2009, 10am
Location: Church of St John on Bethnal Green, Good Friday service, 10am on April 10th 2009.
After 8 years in the making, 's
fourteen Stations of the Cross will finally be installed permanently in
the beautiful grade-one listed church, St-John on Bethnal Green, designed by Sir John Soane.
His powerful series of paintings will be used as an active aid to
worship in the Good Friday service at 10am. This is an ambulatory
service interspersed with readings and music, passing from Station to
Station, in remembrance of Christ's last journey.
As they are finally installed permanently, the paintings may also be
viewed by the visiting public from 11.15am and over the Easter weekend
between services. They will serve as a future attraction to visitors as
well as remaining an active aid to worship. Once installed permanently,
Gollon's Stations will also transform St John on Bethnal Green into a
major visitor attraction in East London.
St John on Bethnal Green is situated between the Museum of Childhood and Bethnal Green Tube Station, only minutes away from Chris Gollon's Gallery, IAP Fine Art.
