Good Friday Walk of Witness

A damp but determined group of people, including some from Nocton, set off under cloudy skies for a Walk of Witness around Branston. We started and finished at All Saints Church with prayer, between which times we walked around Branston behind a cross, stopping at a number of locations to remember the Stations of the Cross. Each stop included a reading from the Bible and a few hymn verses. Some passers by looked bemused; others watched from behind their curtains. Canon Bryan Barrodale's traffic stopping technique (standing in the middle of the road with cape billowing, shepherding his flock across) was memorable. It was good to show the villagers that there is a Christian community locally and to remind them of what Good Friday is really about.
