Good Friday Procession of Witness

For many years CTiC has organised a Good Friday Procession and Service of Witness in the City Centre, involving hundreds of Christians from many of the Churches of Chelmsford.

There are initially six processions, starting from different outlying estates. There are four stops en-route, mostly at churches where some of these processions join together or further participants join in. During these stops, prayers are said and a hymn/Christian song sung. 

Eventually, three large crosses are paraded into the High Street and everyone meets by the Shire Hall, where a 45 minute evangelistic service, with sung praise and worship takes place. 

The mayor and deputy mayor and also our MP were amongst invited guests from the City. The Salvation Army Band provided the music and local Christian evangelist Nigel Bolitho, was our speaker. Representatives of Chelmsford 24-7 Prayer provided stewarding and were on hand if anyone had need of prayer.

We are currently planning for Good Friday 2019, on 19th April, and further details will be published nearer the time as to how you can become involved in this great act of Christian witness to our City..

Here are some photos from our 2018 gathering:
