CHURCHES were united on a Good Friday procession in Saffron Walden to remember the death of Jesus Christ.

More than 200 people took part in the walk, which was organised by the Salvation Army, from the Baptist Church on the High Street, via the Market Square, to St Mary's Parish Church

St Mary's Curate, Lee Batson, said: "The procession was for all Christians to remember the death of Jesus Christ by walking in silence.

"There were more than 200 people across all age groups and the turnout was up on last year - I think the good weather helped.

"It started with a short service at the Baptist Church led by Major Carol Evans, hymns were sung and prayers said in the Market Square, and the final reading was said at St Mary's."

"And 150 people from different churches met at the Market Square on Easter Sunday to celebrate our common faith in the resurrection of Jesus Christ."

Mr Batson added: "We'd like to thank the police for stopping traffic and helping us with the procession.
