2013 Sherwood & Carrington Good Friday Walk of Witness

leaving Sherwood United Reformed Church

Photographs from the annual
Good Friday Walk of Witness.

Members of the United Reformed Church joined others from St Martin's CofE, Sherwood Methodist Church and St John's CofE for the annual Good Friday Walk of Witness

This is the third station outside our chrurch
taken just as we moved off to walk down Mansfield Road.

The snow held off and the sun even shone, offering a vain hope of warmth. Perhaps it was the weather that made it feel like we were fewer in numbers, but at fifty people, we had a dozen more than last year!

The walk consisted of several 'stations' each consisting of sentences, a reading from the gospel story and prayers.

We gathered as usual inside the church of St Martin before walking on the the various stations.Inside St Martin's

4. We kept to the west side of Mansfield Road to stay in the sun
and held the fourth Station just below Nissa.

It was a bit of a squash as the pavement was much narrower,
and the sun so feeble in it warmth was it worth it?
