On one of Christianity’s most holy days, hundreds gathered in Fort Langley today (March 25) to reflect on and celebrate the story of Jesus, the Cross, and Easter.

Hosted by the churches of Fort Langley (Fort Langley Evangelical Free Church), Living Waters Church, The Parish of St. George – Anglican Church of Canada, United Churches of Langley – St. Andrews, and Wagner Hills Ministries, Fort Langley’s Good Friday Walk: Stations of Holy Week has been held every Good Friday at the Village for more than 20 years.

During the outdoor, moveable service, worshipers took turns carrying a cross to locations around downtown Fort Langley.

“Togetherness is a hallmark of Christian faith,” read the notes in the service’s handout. “The churches of Fort Langley aim to love and celebrate one another in an effort to reflect our oneness with Christ. We express togetherness through serving the community of Fort Langley, hosting ecumenical events, and prayer. Our hope is that this heart of unity will help us better love and serve the beautiful village of Fort Langley and its surrounding neighbourhoods. Welcome!”

This year’s service broadened, becoming “Stations of Holy Week” – a recognition of both Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday in the opening and closing stations, respectively.

“The majority of the stations reflect events which occurred on Good Friday surrounding Jesus’ suffering and death,” explained Living Waters Church associate pastor Luke Knight, the chief coordinator.
