When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?”
“Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.”
Again Jesus said, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
He answered, “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Take care of my sheep.”
The third time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?”
Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, “Do you love me?” He said, “Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.”
Jesus said, “Feed my sheep. 18 Very truly I tell you, when you were younger you dressed yourself and went where you wanted; but when you are old you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.” 19 Jesus said this to indicate the kind of death by which Peter would glorify God. Then he said to him, “Follow me!”
Good Friday 2016
A large group of Christians started out at St Peter’s and made their way to the Market Place.
Stopping to sing and pray outside the recently closed Co-op on Castle St and by Bell Entry.
A very large group of us worshiped in the bright sunshine, gathered around the Cross.
The Church Lads and Church girls Marching band of Hinckley & Atherstone played for us to sing along.
Tributes to Jane Gibbs (who has recently died) and Malcolm Clarke (who is about to retire from active preaching) were made before we finished up at the URC in the Borough for hot drinks and Hot Cross Buns to chat with all our friends from other Churches.
This event took place from 26th November to 29th November at Hinckley Methodist Church and schoolrooms.
Many thanks to everyone who helped make this event successful. We had an excellent weekend and raised £1863.21. to be shared between church funds and Red Cross Emergency Response Team Volunteer.
