Walk of Witness

As part of their Eastertide observance, members of local congregations met together on Good Friday 15th April, under the banner of Churches Together in Haddenham, to participate in a public act of worship and a walk of witness through the village.

Beginning at Townend Green, the group — led this year by Rev Jonny Fillis on behalf of Haddenham Baptis Church — processed along Dollicott, past the Rising Sun to Fort End. From there they walked down the High Street and on to the Catholic church. The group then walked along The Croft and Gibson Lane before emerging onto Church End.

Along the way, the group stopped at various points to hear Easter readings and to offer prayers and hymns.

With assistance from Jonny Fillis, the heavy timber cross was carried by Ross Marshall who is the part-time non-stipendary Minister at the Baptist church.

At St Mary's Church the group joined a larger congregation from the Methodist, Baptist, Catholic and Anglican churches for a service to mark Good Friday.
