Walk of witness procession through Lowestoft town centre

MORE than 100 worshippers remembered the true meaning of Easter as they gathered for a walk of witness through Lowestoft.

Christians Together in Lowestoft and District joined forces this morning as part of the annual Good Friday event, which sees the Procession of the Cross through the town centre.

After gathering at 10.15am for prayers at the Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Gordon Road, the procession attracted more people along the route.

Bringing together Christians from all denominations across the town, the Good Friday walk through the town centre was well-attended.

The procession made its way through Gordon Road, Clapham Road and Surrey Street before reaching London Road North and walking through Lowestoft town centre.

As well as walking in silent witness, hymns were sung as the procession made its way through the main street. There were also three stops along the main stretch of the town centre for readings and prayers, which drew more followers and interest from shoppers.

When the procession arrived at the United Reformed Church, there was a further reading and prayer before a hymn and music from the Salvation Army band.
