Arrow Introduction

When I survey the wondrous cross
As an opening video we are offering an instrumental version of "When I survey the wondrous cross"  with images that follow the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem  - Download  - Sample

The backing track is copyright and distributed using PRS Licence LE-0013013 . Please do not pass it on outside the IDEAS scheme and declare its use on your CCLI report.

The resources for Good Friday take a different form.

They take the form of a Stations of Cross along the Via Dolorosa. There are 14 readings. The video of each reading were filmed at the various points in Jerusalem along the Via Dolorosa and even in the Holy Sepulchre. They were read by members of a Pilgrimage Ann and Mike led to the Holy Land. Anyone who has walked the Via Dolorosa knows that it winds it way through bustling Jerusalem streets and life goes on as usual around you - just as we assume it did as Jesus carried his cross through the city. This means that there is quite a bit of background noise to the videos, but we think this adds to the atmosphere. The videos are subtitled in case someone does have trouble picking up the voices.

We also provide the readings as PowerPoint presentations. If using the videos it would be easy to substitute the video for the text. There are also prayers, reflections and song suggestions for each station - Download
