Churches Together in Farnham’s
Walk of Witness
Friday 25th March 2016
Christians Bear Witness on Good Friday
About 180 people gathered in The Hart at 12 noon on Good Friday to join the silent Walk of Witness around Farnham. The time marked the first hour of Jesus’ crucifixion - He is recorded in the Gospels as being nailed to the cross at noon and finally dying at three o’clock in the afternoon.

Prayers at the start of the walk were led by Rev. Conrad Hicks of Farnham Methodist Church.
The cross at the head of the procession was carried by Robert Thain and Richard Haines, respectively Lay Minister and Churchwarden from St.Andrew’s church.
The walk was organised by Stewart Dakers on behalf of Churches Together in Farnham — as on many previous years. The walk was guided by a team of willing helpers, but now without police support.
At the end of the walk in St.Andrew’s churchyard, prayers were led by Pastor Michael Hall, of Farnham Pentecostal Church.
At the concluding prayers, Pastor Hall had everyone who had gathered around the cross turn to face outwards and pray to be of service to the community around them — in this way seeking to follow the example of Jesus Himself.
