The congregation of St Andrews church gathered outside the Fishermans Rest for the start of the Walk of Witness on Good Friday morning. Rev Matt Rowland officiated and read from the Bible before the people moved into Fore St. There was a healthy number of people and as this was a Benefice event, a number of folk came from the other churches in the Benefice, how lovely to be able to welcome them and how fortunate to have such lovely weather! The walk continued into Fore St stopping at Rock Hill and Tree Corner for more readings and to put up the cross. Many thanks to Mr Peter Fish for carrying the cross and doing the necessary hard work on Tree Corner! The walk continued into church where some old favourite and quite wonderful Easter hymns were sung, grateful thanks must also be shared to our organist for the day, Mr David Tagent, so wonderful to have such lovely playing for such an important day in the church calendar! St Andrews will have aHoly Communion service this Sunday starting at the usual time of 11am, all are welcome to attend and there will be refreshments after the service.
