Procession of Witness, Good Friday 22nd April 2011

On Good Friday morning (22nd April) in Tintagel, the Churches Together Procession of Witness left Bossiney Methodist Chapel, stopped outside St. Paul Catholic Church and then left again for Tintagel Methodist Chapel and Trevena Square in the centre of the village, more people joining along the way. It was led by the Revs. John Henry Barfoot and Bryan Storey, and by Glenton Brown and Stuart Patterson. Prayers were said and Lenten hymns sung at each stop. The procession was started about ten years ago by Rev. Steve Wild, formerly the Methodist Church’s national Director of Evangelism, as part of a number of events. These included visits to all village houses and the distribution of hot cross buns in the streets of the village - the latter still occurs today. The Catholic and Anglican churches soon joined and now this very successful ecumenical procession has become the most publicly visible reminder in Tintagel of the meaning of Holy Week.
