The Canterbury Council of Churches will host Stations of the Cross, to be held on Good Friday at 12 noon at the Highfield Oval (corner of Highfield and Riversdale Roads, Canterbury). Those gathered walk around the oval stopping for a prayer and Bible reading as the events of Good Friday are re-enacted. This is followed by an Easter Egg hunt for young children. The adults share a hot cross bun. The unaccompanied singing is lead by the local Tongan congregation [Balwyn Road Canterbury, Uniting Church].
