Hundreds gather for Walk of Witness

Churches Together came out to sing and celebrate their faith on Good Friday with the annual Walk of Witness.

Starting at St John’s church, walkers carried a wooden cross, emblazoned with ‘Easter 2014,’ along Warwick Road.

Around 300 people gathered in Talisman Square to represent churches right across the town.

Derived from the Old English ‘God’s Friday’, the day is a chance for churches to unite 
in declaring Jesus Christ as their saviour.

The strength of the church was highlighted in a talk by Tim Brewer who revealed how his faith of God’s love helped him 
overcome difficulties in his life, leading to his upcoming baptism in May.

After the service, the crowd continued past Abbey End and into Abbey Fields where the cross was planted.

It remained in place over the weekend as a reminder that the church is “definitively not reaching extinction and that Christ is indeed alive”.
