Christians march through streets of Norwich

Witness10WebBy Keith Morris
Over 200 Christians from dozens of Norwich churches marched through the centre of Norwich behind a giant cross on Good Friday.
The annual Walk of Witness on April 6 saw the largest turnout for a number of years of over 220 people, according to organizers, and stretched to over 100 yards as it left Chapelfield Methodist Church with a Police escort. Led by the Bishop of Norwich, the Mayor and the Sheriff, and accompanied by the Norwich Salvation Army Citadel Band, the procession stopped at Millennium Plain outside the Forum for a short service before proceeding through city streets to the Anglican Cathedral for an ecumenical celebration.
Witness9WebTransforming Norwich chairman John Betts, who has helped to organize the event, said: “This occasion provided a wonderful opportunity for the Body of Christ to stand together for the faith we proclaim.
"It is a celebration of and witness to the finished work of our Lord Jesus Christ upon the cross.”
The Cathedral service heard Rev James East, of Norwich Central Baptist Church, preach: “The Easter story is one of tremendous tragedy along with amazing triumph,” said James.
