Walk across town celebrates Easter

Well over 100 church members took part in a procession in Bognor Regis town centre for Easter.

 

The some 150 worshippers formed a walk of witness on Good Friday morning.

 

Members of various churches around the town began at Bognor Regis Methodist Church in Waterloo Square and walked to Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church in Clarence Road.

 

They paused at the junction of London Road and High Street to sing the hymn, When I Survey the Wondrous Cross, with the town’s Salvation Army band.

 

The Rev Dan Balsdon, minister at the Methodist church, said: “Our aim was to gather as one, as a visible sign of unity in our faith, and in witness with each other and to our local community, to the importance and centrality of the events of Good Friday to our Christian faith.”

 

The walk was co-ordinated by Our Lady of Sorrows Church and the Methodist church, supported by Bognor Regis and District Churches Together.

 

It was led by two men connected with the L’Arche community in the town carrying a large wooden cross to signify the death of Jesus.

 

There are 11 L’Arche communities in the UK as part of an international federation where people with and without learning disabilities share life together.

 

It has four houses and a workshop in the town.
