A PASSION FOR YOUR COMMUNITY
ONE FRIDAY can help you to do something exciting in 2017; something unique and public that will engage your community in re-telling the story of the Passion of Jesus.
There will be music, drama and commissioned art. We will resource churches to stage public events and exhibitions that will engage their local communities in retelling and responding to the events of the final day of Jesus’ life.
ONE FRIDAY CHALLENGE
To keep the story of Jesus alive we need to find new ways of telling it in public places. That’s why we’ve launched the ONE FRIDAY Challenge.
This year the most imaginative projects will benefit from an award of £1000 and four awards of £200.
WHAT WILL ONE FRIDAY LOOK LIKE IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
An open-air event
Challenge local groups to represent the themes of the Good Friday story through art, music or drama – then bring them together in a community event.
Order a set of Stations of the Cross from the One Friday website and exhibit them in a community space such as a library, a school or a series of shop windows.
Make a pilgrimage around your own community, using the One Friday outline script to retell the Good Friday story in a series of locations around your town or village.
A gift for your community
Offer the beautiful One Friday booklet as an Easter gift to people in your community; give it out in schools, through church groups, or in local shops.
An art trail
Post a set of Stations of the Cross in strategic locations around your community. Challenge children and adults to spot or photograph them all.
A social media event
Using local media or church contacts, invite people to receive a daily image or a brief meditation by text, Twitter or Facebook every day for two weeks before Good Friday.
A Thought for the Day
Post a challenging image from the Stations of the Cross in your workplace or your window every day for a fortnight.
