As part of their Eastertide observance, members of local church congregations met together on Good Friday 19th 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 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, Printers Piece and down the southern half of Churchway, stopping at various locations to hear Easter readings and to offer prayers and hymns.

Various members of the group carried the heavy wooden cross along the route, some individually others in pairs.

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.
