Hundreds of local people are expected to turn out on the streets of Huntingdon on Good Friday (19 April) as part of the town’s annual Walk of Witness.

Dr Chan Abraham of Daybreak Ministries, who co-ordinates the event for Churches Together in Huntingdon and Godmanchester, said, “All the churches are delighted to invite our fellow citizens to share in the hope and faith that Good Friday and Easter bring. Last year, more than 200 people attended from the churches, with many more watching in the streets. We’re hoping for even more this year.”

At each point that the walk stops there will be Bible readings accompanied by three-minute talks on “The Seven Words of Jesus from the Cross” and well-known songs such as Amazing Grace.

Dr Abraham added: “Our nation is going through a time of confusion and uncertainty. But the Good Friday and Easter message bring clarity and peace and the opportunity to make progress on The Road to Renewal. We hope that this Good Friday we’ll all be inspired that together we can change the world for the better right where we are.”

Anyone wishing to take part in the event should meet at the Huntingdon Methodist Church at 10.45am.
