Good Friday

Churches Together in Woking is a Forum which meets 4 times a year. Its primary goal is to serve both the liturgical and the practical needs of the community. Members of all local denominations participate, including Church of England, Roman Catholic, Baptist, Methodist, and United Reformed.


Every year on Good Friday, the Salvation Army Band leads all who want to follow them from Commercial Way...

Photobucket the Town Square. Upon arrival there are short prayers and messages, and lots of singing.


The praise band was sheltered in the white tent, and just beyond it stands Christ Church. That is where free coffee, tea, and hot cross buns were available at the end of yesterday's service. Some people also wore bright yellow badges to show that they were willing to answer any questions about Christianity, either in the square or in the church. I thought it was all nicely done - an open opportunity, but in no way pushy.
