Fern Britton and singer Alexandra Burke joined local community participants, ranging from dancers and graffiti artists to  a massed choir, to tell the story of the last moments of Christ's life, from his trial and suffering to his eventual death.


Twelve artist created new contemporary work with local communities across the north east of England, inspired by the stations of the cross. Housed in shipping containers, they were joined together to form a giant iconic installation in the shape of a cross. Artworks range from a boat atop a shipping container with a net descending to the floor, made by local fishermen questioning 'what is truth', to the memories of Northumberlanders inscribed on a long wooden table.   One of the containers was housed in the grounds of St Andrew's Church.
