Maundy Thursday Shoe Shine

The church leaders from the churches in Cottingham joined together on Maundy Thursday to offer free shoe shines in a modern day streetwise symbol of Jesus' washing of the disciples feet. Our tagline was 'We're better at souls than uppers'. People were thrown by the fact that it was free, but we had a steady stream of happy customers through the morning.
