A town centre trail is being created by Churches Together in Harborough for Good Friday.

People are being invited to walk the trail and visit the different displays for the Easter Exploration exhibition which will be at all the churches in town from 10am to 3pm.

Each art display will depict one of the sayings of Jesus from the cross. Visitors can just look, or pray and meditate on what they see. Churches taking part are St Dionysius in High Street, Harborough Methodist Church in Northampton Road, Our Lady of Victories Catholic Church in Fairfield Road, Harborough Baptist Church in Coventry Road and Harborough Congregational Church in High Street.

Meanwhile, in The Square on the morning of Good Friday, Harborough Evangelical Church will be giving out Easter prayer trail leaflets, goodie bags for children and cold drinks.

Trail leaflets are also available in all the town centre churches.

John Pearse, chairman of Churches Together in Harborough, said: “We hope many in the town will enjoy walking the Easter Exploration trail and discovering the significance of what Jesus said and did on the first Good Friday.

“This is a new event instead of the normal service on a stage in The Square.”

During the week leading up to the Good Friday trail, the Easter Experience free exhibition at Harborough Baptist Church runs from Monday, April 14, until Saturday, April 19, open from 10am to 4pm, each weekday and 10am to 2pm on the Saturday.

The exhibition will show the dramatic story of the last days of Jesus on Earth. Visitors will be able to explore The Last Supper, the garden, trial scene, the cross, see inside an open tomb and light a candle.

A quiet area is available to sit and reflect and visitors can plant a sunflower seed and take it home for their garden as a reminder of the Easter Experience.
