Good Friday Walk of Witness

Good Friday Walk of Witness

Sherwood and Carrington Churches Together Good Friday Walk of Witness

Once again Good Friday was a time for the churches of Sherwood and Carrington to walk through the 'town' following the cross. We began at the URC for a change as St Martins' had an event on inside their church. We followed what was essentially the same liturgy as previous years, but tried to make it more interactive - especially at those stations on Mansfield Road, where it is hard to hear if you are not on the front row of 'the crowd'. We also included short prayers for the community.
