As part of their Eastertide observance, members of local congregations met together on Good Friday 30th March, 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 with prayers and hymns on Townend Green, the group -- led this year by Rev Margot Hodson on behalf of St Mary's Church -- processed along Dollicott, through Fort End, Banks Road and down the southern half of Churchway, stopping at various locations to hear Easter readings and to offer prayers and hymns.

A heavy timber cross was carried at the head of the procession, born for the first part by Ken Gilham; Charles Kelton stepped up for the second phase.

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.
