NORTHOLT Christians marched to the top of the hill at Northala fields to mark Good Friday.
People gathered around a wooden cross put up on the wall to sing and pray, on the day Christians believe Jesus was crucified.
The Bible story of the crucifixion was read in dramatised form, with the congregation joining in the shouts and taunts of the crowd.
The service was led by Reverend Deborah Chapman from St Hugh's church, Kensington Road, with ministers from other churches taking part.
At the end of the service, the worshippers were invited to Northolt Methodist Church for hot drinks and hot cross buns whilst the cross remained in its position until sunset.
Former minister at Greenford Methodist church, Kip Bennett, said: “We thought when Northala Fields was built it would be good to put a cross there. Easter is a much more important celebration for Christians than Christmas. It speaks that there is always hope for the world no matter how things are, and that extends to the individual.”
The day was attended by organisations within Soul In Northolt and Greenford (SING).
The principle churches involved were St Hugh's, St Mary's, St Richard's, St Barnabas, St Joseph's, Northolt park baptist church, Greenford baptist church and the Christian revival centre who meet at St Mary's.
Friday’s procession, which has been going for about four or five years, had around 150 people meeting at three points; the clock tower on Mandeville Road, St Hugh’s on Kensington Road and St Joseph’s at Yeading Lane.
The three processions wound their way up the hill by midday before hearing a service made up of readings, prayers and meditations.
At sunrise on Sunday morning about 50 church members went back up the hill where they performed communion -the taking of bread and wine- as a celebration of the resurrection.
