This Easter we would like to invite Christians across Peebles and the Borders (and even further afield!) to celebrate Easter by making and decorating a cross in their homes. While it is not possible to celebrate together physically this year we can still join together in spirit to focus on the hope of the cross and Christ’s death and resurrection for us! Individual households could make a simple cross with paper and pens to go in a window or something more elaborate made from wood or other materials that might stand in a front garden (see the example below for instructions on how to make a cross from garden branches.) These can be displayed and decorated over the Easter Weekend. We hope that whilst still adhering to social distancing guidelines our neighbours might be able to enjoy seeing this sign of Christian hope in windows and gardens around them. It would be great to share pictures on social media too if this is something you do, quote #Easterhope. He is risen!

“Here’s one I made earlier!”
