Activities

The main activities of Bray Churches Together are:

  • Annual Service of Christian Unity

  •  Ecumenical Stations of the Cross to Bray Head on Good Friday

  • Easter Sunday Sunrise Service

  • Art Exhibition
  • Christmas Carols around the Christmas Tree


Annual Service of Christian Unity:  This takes place in January during the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, and follows the Order of Service used worldwide, but adapted for our town.  It is hosted by a different congregation each year with that church leading the Service and providing the music.  Usually the speaker is from another of our congregations, although we have on occasion had a visiting preacher



On Good Friday the annual ecumenical Stations of the Cross starts in Queen of Peace church at 10.00am.  From there we proceed up the Vevay Road to the Southern Cross roundabout, and then climb up Bray Head to conclude our prayers around the cross on the top of the headland.
We are often asked about the Bray Head cross – it was erected to mark the Holy Year of 1950.
Members from different worshipping communities lead the prayers at the various Stations.
It is important to wear suitable footwear for the climb, and outdoor gear for the weather, as it is very exposed at the summit.




On Easter Sunday we hold our annual Dawn Service on Bray Head, usually at 6.30am.  We gather on the flat area just below the Raheen Park carpark. There is always a large number at this Service, and it is well worth the early start! We share a short Liturgy together, during which we pray for our town from our vantage point on the side of the headland, and a leader from one of our churches shares a short Easter reflection.
The Dawn Service is usually followed by Breakfast hosted by one of our congregations – a great opportunity to warm up and enjoy fellowship together.




ART EXHIBITION:
Organised approximately biennially.
