Sheringham’s churches join together for ‘walk of witness’

Sheringham's churches are joining together for Good Friday worship and to plant a wooden cross at Beeston bump.

A united service will be held at St Peter's and participants will be invited from all the town's churches for a short service starting at 10.30am.

At 11.10am the congregation will then make their way to the town's clock tower to take part in the 'walk of witness', where everyone is invited.

After a time of reflection they will leave the clock tower at 11.20am with a large wooden cross, which will be carried to the top of Beeston bump to be erected at around 11.50am.

A spokesman for the group said: 'There is a genuine desire in the churches to focus on Jesus himself, and not on any differences in style between our denominations, and that is especially true at this time of year.'

Early risers will return two days later on Easter Sunday for a 'son-rise' service at 7am. The celebration will be followed by breakfast at the Baptist church on Holway Road.
