Stanwick Group of Churches

The Cross of Christ

The choirs of the Stanwick Group of Churches and St Mary's, Richmond sing The Cross of Christ, a devotion for congregation and choir, on Good Friday in St James, Melsonby at 10.00am and in St Mary's, Richmond at 7.00pm.

A series of readings foretells the crucifixion and is followed by accounts of Christ’s betrayal, trial, crucifixion, death and eventual triumph. The readings are interspersed with anthems and congregational hymns in a style simlar to the more familiar Nine Lessons and Carols at Christmas

The two choirs have been trained and will be directed by Chris Denton, organist and choirmaster of St Mary’s and we are most appreciative of the work Chris has done with our choir since his arrival in the benefice
