Walk of Witness on Good Friday

By Contributor in Events

Totnes is due to come to a halt on Good Friday as more than 100 people take part in a Walk of Witness through the town centre.

The annual Easter event, organised by the town’s churches, is due to start at St John’s Church, Bridgetown, at 10am.

The procession headed by a volunteer carrying a large wooden cross, will stop at St Mary’s Church for 10 minutes of hymns, prayers and readings.

The procession will then walk to the top of Kingsbridge Hill where the cross will be set up overlooking the town following a 10-minute service.

A spokesman said the “everyone is invited to joint the Walk of Witness”.

After the walk, people are invited to the United Free Church in Fore Street for hot cross buns. Poetry prose and music played by Totnes pianist Elie Fruchter will be taking place at St John’s Church, Bridgetown, on Good Friday between 3pm and 4pm.

The event is designed to reflect the events of the crucifixion of Christ.
