Hope at Eastertide

March 19, 2008 at 5:18 pm Leave a comment

Easter is first and foremost a time of hope, and we want to be able to spread some of that sense of hope abroad in our town over the coming days and weeks.

On Good Friday morning, the Hope 08 Belper team will be out and about, taking part in the annual Walk of Witness through the town organised by local churches and handing out Easter Eggs to passers-by, another small “act of kindness” which we hope will be appreciated!

Afterwards there will be the chance to see the Manchester Passion, which tells the story of Jesus’s cruxifixion to the music of the Stone Roses, the Smiths, New Order and other leading Manchester bands.  It will be shown at the Salvation Army Hall on Market Place from 11am.

Food will be available during the showing and as an added bonus, Belper recording artist James Christie Brown will be playing live outside the Hall both beforehand and afterwards.

These Good Friday activities are the start of a series of Hope 08 events over the course of Easter and the school holidays next month.

On Saturday 5 April, around 100 young people are being given the chance to see the film Evan Almighty at the Ritz Cinema. Free tickets for this are being distributed by the town’s five junior schools.

Before that, on Sunday 30 March, Hope Cafe is launching in the Salvation Army Hall .   Hope 08 is pleased to be able to support this initiative by the local Salvation Army which aims to provide a chance for young people to meet friends and discuss issues of concern in a relaxed and informal atmosphere.

It will take place from 7-9pm each Sunday evening and the typical “menu” will include live music, a quiz, a discussion – and really great coffee!  Look out for more news about this on the site next week.
