On Good Friday, Councillor Alexander Stafford supported the 2nd annual Passion Play in Ealing Broadway by volunteering to be an usher, aiding the procession and ensuring a fun and informative morning was had by all.
The Passion Play was part of a Churches Together in Ealing initiative, which saw all the Ealing churches work together to put on the performance. The Play started off in Haven Green, led by Steve Newbold, the Vicar of St Stephen’s Church, with songs and readings, before the procession made its way past Ealing Broadway Station and along the Uxbridge Road, before ending up in the churchyard of Christ the Saviour, where the reenactment of the Crucifixion took place.
Councillor Stafford commented:
“It was an honour and a privilege to help out with this year’s Passion Play. Hundreds of people attended what was a very moving occasion, celebrating the death of Jesus Christ. I know for many people this was the highlight of their Good Friday celebrations, allowing them to publicly worship together. It was a pleasure to see all the churches of Ealing, regardless of denomination, working together to put on this great community event, and I do hope and pray that it will continue next year.”
