The annual ‘Good Friday carrying of the cross walk of witness’ was held in Lisburn on Friday March 25.
The procession gathered at the lower end of Bow Street at 1pm and made its way along Bow Street to Market Square for a short act of worship led by some Lisburn City Centre Clergy.
The Rev Paul Dundas (Christ Church Parish) welcomed all who gathered. Melvin Jose (St Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church) led a prayer and Evelyn Whyte (Deaconess of First Lisburn Presbyterian Church) led a prayer for the City of Lisburn.
The Scripture lesson was read by Lucy Fitzpatrick (First Lisburn Presbyterian Church) and an Easter reflection was given by Rev Bobby Liddle (Legacurry Presbyterian Church). Pastor Nick Serb and and Mark Ferguson (Mount Zion Community Church) led the singing of the well known Easter hymns, ‘When I survey the wondrous cross’ and ‘I stand amazed in the presence of Jesus the Nazarene’. The Rev Mervyn Ewing (Seymour Street Methodist Church) closed in prayer.
Refreshments were served afterwards in First Lisburn Presbyterian Church.
