Pictures: Walk of Witness spreads the Easter message


Around 100 people joined the Good Friday Walk of Witness, organised by Churches Together in Stroud. It was the first time the event had taken place in three years, due to the pandemic.

The event brought together worshippers from the nine Anglican Churches around Stroud as well as Stroud Salvation Army, Stroud Christian Fellowship, and Methodist and Baptist Churches. The wooden cross was carried through the town by Sam Rudman and Pedro Chalkiadakis.

Rev Kate Stacey, Team Rector of the Anglican Churches in Stroud, said: “It’s about us sharing the good news with people around us – not expecting people to come to us, but us going out and sharing it in the town.”

The walk began at the top of the High Street with readings, hymns and prayers at stations of the cross in King Street, the Sub Rooms and finally in the churchyard at St Laurence Church. Afterwards walkers were treated to hot cross buns and cups of tea in St Laurence Church Hall.
