Setting Up The Stations

Depending on your context, you may like to just stick the printed sheets to the wall or you may prefer to set up stations on small tables using fabric and lights to create a different mood.
You might like to have some gentle, relaxing music in the background but music tastes differ so it’s also worth thinking about whether it is a good opportunity to engage with silence

The Stations

Each station also has an accompanying scripture (in 4 translations) on a seperate page, these are included in the downloadable PDF above.
