Book features Farnham Walk of Witness
A recently published book features a picture of the Good Friday Walk of Witness through Farnham. Mark Lewis, the author of ‘Days and Rites — Popular Customs of the Church’ chose a photograph of Churches Together in Farnham members following the cross along Downing Street in 2011 to illustrate his article on this nationwide act of witness to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
The book explores the extraordinarily varied range of ceremonies observed by churches around Britain. Many of these customs stem from the earliest times, whilst others are surprisingly modern in origin. Some are widespread and others unique to individual churches.
