The event began at St Peter’s and St Paul’s Church where everyone in the gathering lit a candle, then extinguished it as the large cross was carried past as a symbol of remembering the death of Jesus on the cross, which Good Friday commemorates.

Then the procession walked around the town centre, stopping at various points where the 14 Stations of the Cross were observed.

There were Bible readings and a practical activity for the children at each station.

The event was a great success as people within the town were reminded of the message of Jesus’ death on the cross and invited to look forward to Easter Sunday where his resurrection from the dead was be celebrated in churches across the town.

“Wisbech Churches Together is a fellowship of churches that worship God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour according to the Scriptures. There are currently 13 member churches and three organisation-members.”
