Walk of Witness and Wintershall

Date: 11 April 2014
MEMBERS OF CHURCHES in and around Guildford will gather on Good Friday morning (11 April) for a walk of witness in the town centre.

The walk starts at 10:30am from the Rotunda – close to New Look at the bottom of North Street. It opens with a short prayer and a hymn, and then proceeds through Friary Street and up the High Street.

The walk focuses on the events of Good Friday and many choose to walk in silence. After a pause near Tunsgate for a Bible reading and a hymn, the procession moves on to the steps of Holy Trinity Church at the top of the High Street, where a short talk is given.

Bishop of Dorking, Ian Brackley will give the talk and a blessing outside Holy Trinity Church at around 11.15 and will be part of the walk of witness.

The following day sees the Wintershall players give two free performances of The Passion of Jesus on Guildford High Street at 12 and 2.30pm on Easter Saturday (April 19).

The play starts at the bottom of the High Street outside Marks and Spencer and moves up the High Street, finishing with the crucifixion and resurrection outside Holy Trinity Church.

The performances will be a repeat of a performance in Trafalgar Square on Good Friday. For more information about Wintershall click here.
