Parishioners from churches in Crewkerne came together on Good Friday for a walk around the town, with a bearer carrying a wooden cross. The churches ‘Walk of Witness’, which takes place every year on the Friday before Easter Sunday, saw people gather outside of the Henhayes Community Centre for an opening prayer.
The solemn procession, led by the Reverend Stuart Huntley of the Wulfric Benefice, then preceded through South Street car park to Lidls, where they paused in reflection with the continuance of the first prayer of the morning. The church procession preceded through the pedestrian walkway to Falkland Square, whereby another prayer was recited, followed by a pastoral song. The church group then walked to Waitrose where they paused for a prayer and a hymn.
Several shoppers stopped to hear the Christian Easter message before they continued with their shopping and daily routines. The church procession ended the ‘Walk of Witness’ at the Methodist church in South Street, where the group joined with other parishioners for a church service.
