It has been evident how repeatedly, in times of adversity, Luton communities have stood together in solidarity. At this year’s Good Friday, while remembering Jesus Christ’s insult, humiliation, torture, deceit, denial, before and during his journey with Cross to Calvary, the multinational and multicultural Christian population of Luton united together to march in solidarity with Christians, being persecuted, in countries in the Middle East.

Christians across the town, as various “Churches Together” Groups, visiting different Churches as Prayer Stations. However, the most important Christian festival comes just after Good Friday. It is Easter. Christians believe Jesus rose from the dead on Easter Sunday and that He offers everyone, who believes in Him, the gift of eternal life, salvation and forgiveness of sins.

Flowers, signifying the new life springing out from the very cross upon which Christ gave His life for all humankind were displayed at High Town Methodist church.
