Churches and communities from across the Diocese of Durham have been very busy this week (Holy Week), with a raft of events, services and activities for Easter, that point in the Christian Calendar where we commemorate the last hours of the earthly life of Jesus Christ on earth on Good Friday and the miracle of new life as he rose again from the dead on Easter Sunday. The Great North Passion Some Churches in South Tyneside and Sunderland have been very busy over the last few months taking part in events leading up to the live screening on BBC One of the Great North Passion – the modern retelling of the story of the last hours of the life on earth of Jesus via series of art and cultural works in shipping containers depicting the 12 stations of the cross.
