We are pleased to announce the launch of the newly revamped and developed 'Cross Shaped Jesus'

Cross Shaped Jesus is a 6 week programme that explores the crucifixion of Christ.

With its focus being on the events of the crucifixion, it obviously makes a very good Lent Course - but Cross Shaped Jesus can actually be used at other times of the year as well.

Nonetheless, we anticipate that most churches will use Cross Shaped Jesus for their Lent programme, and we include several elements that will enhance a Lent course.

This is the first of a series of planned programmes that will follow on from, and develop, the Jesus Shaped People programme. Unlike the core of JSP programme, and Spirit Filled Church, it does not focus on the Five Priorities. Instead it focuses on a key episode from Jesus' life.

In common with our other programmes, Cross Shaped Jesus offers a full range of resources - sermon notes, small group materials, children's resources and worship materials.

JSP Churches can now access this resource from the Download Area here on the site as usual. Just log in and navigate to the Cross Shaped Jesus section to get started.

Other churches interested in Cross Shaped Jesus should, in the first instance, make contact with the Programme Director, the Revd Canon Gordon Dey to begin a conversation about Jesus Shaped People.
