An Easter walk of witness took place through Saffron Walden on Good Friday morning with a cross being carried through the town by The Reverend David Tomlinson, Vicar of St Mary’s.
The walk, from Abbey Lane to St Mary’s Church, which took place slowly and in silence, was organised by Churches Together, a group of different Christian faiths, and was attended by the Mayor of Saffron Walden, Councillor Safraz Anjum.
It began with an open air service in Abbey Lane and ended with prayers at St Mary’s.
In the afternoon, St Mary’s held a three-hour service with people at liberty to take part and leave when they wished.
This was followed in the evening by a performance of Mozart’s Requiem at the church by St Mary’s Church Choir and an accompanying orchestra.
Reverend John Goddard from the Baptist Church said the walk was “well supported and a good event”.
