We believe that Good Friday is one of the most solemn and holy days of the Christian year, as it commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ.
Anglicans believe that Jesus, through his death on the cross, made the ultimate sacrifice for the redemption of humanity, taking upon himself the sins of the world. Good Friday is a time of reflection and mourning, as Anglicans contemplate the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus and the magnitude of his love for humankind.
On Good Friday, Anglican churches often hold solemn services, including the Liturgy of the Passion, which focuses on the readings and prayers related to the crucifixion of Jesus. Many Anglican churches also hold Stations of the Cross, which involve meditating on the events leading up to Jesus’ death, and participating in prayers and hymns.
In addition to reflecting on the suffering and death of Jesus, Anglicans also use Good Friday as a time to pray for the world’s needs and to remember those who suffer, especially those who are persecuted for their faith. Anglicans believe that through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, God offers the possibility of redemption and salvation to all who believe in him.
