This year, Windsor’s Good Friday Witness organised by Churches Together in Windsor took the form of a “Walk of Witness” through the town centre, allowing individuals to focus on the impact of Jesus’ life, ministry and final hours before his crucifixion.
Reflecting some of the ecumenical breadth of local worship, the cross-led procession began at Windsor Methodist Church and continued on to several other churches, where participants stopping briefly at each for a moment of silent prayer: St. Edward the Confessor RC Church; Holy Trinity Garrison Church; Windsor Baptist Church; Christ Church URC and Windsor Fellowship Church; and passing near St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, before finishing at Windsor Parish Church of St. John the Baptist.
The Witness concluded with “Were You There” and an ecumenical selection of prayers before participants quietly dispersed.
A Christ Church URC member observed, “We much enjoyed the Walk of Witness.
The leaders and cross bearers gave just the right impression… I think the Witness was well respected. Wording on the sheet and the spoken prayers were just right. Thank you for organising it.”
