The annual Good Friday Carrying of the Cross Walk of Witness was held in Lisburn on March 30.
The procession gathered at the lower end of Bow Street and made its way along Bow Street to Market Square for a short act of worship led by some Lisburn City Centre Clergy. The Presbyterian Moderator, The Rt Rev Dr Noble McNeely took part in this year’s event.
The chairman of the Lisburn City Centre Ministers’ Fellowship, the Rev Mervyn Ewing (Minister of Seymour Street Methodist Church) welcomed everyone to the short act of worship in Market Square. Taking part were Father Dermot McCaughan (St Patrick’s), Pastor Brian Agnew (Lisburn City Church) and Ashley Parkes and Alice Francey (Hillsborough Presbyterian Church) who gave a brief overview of a project ‘Love Lisburn’ involving churches from the Lisburn area reaching out and serving people in a practical way.
The praise was led by musicians from Seymour Street Methodist Church. Lynn McAllister (Seymour Street) sang, ‘How deep the Father’s love for us’. David Lamont (Lisburn Cathedral) was in charge of the sound.
