Christ in the Centre

[An image showing Christ in the Centre]I attended the excellent Good Friday event in Leicester "Christ in the Centre".

This year was the tenth anniversary production. I have attended all except one where I had to stay in for a council workman!

"Christ in the Centre" is a re-enactment of the last days of Jesus Christ, culminating in the harrowing Crucifixion and joyous Resurrection.

It took place this year entirely in Humberstone Gate, and as always drew a huge crowd. The Bishop of Leicester, Rt Rev Tim Stevens, addressed the crowd, and ten thousand people sand Isaac Watts` "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross".

I had a meal with friends, some of whom had been involved in the production, at the Terra Cotta restaurant afterwards.
