As part of their Eastertide observance, members of local congregations met together on Good Friday 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 Michael Norris on behalf of the Church of the Good Shepherd — processed along Dollicott, through Fort End, Banks Road and down the southern half of Churchway, stopping at various locations to hear readings focused on the Stations of the Cross, and to offer prayers in response.
A heavy timber cross was carried at the head of the procession, born for the first part by Paul Reynier with assistance from Charles Kelton; Ken Gilham stepped up for the second phase; and, for the latter phase, the cross was born by Daniel Konstantynowicz, accompanied by his father Maciek.
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.
