It was a lovely sunny and warm Easter weekend in 2019 but that is the only comparison to this Easter 2020 so I thought it might be nice to have a quick look back at a few of the events that were taking place last year …enjoy !!!!
Good Friday Walk of Witness Uckfield Friday April 19th 2019
Churches in Uckfield joined together for a Good Friday Walk of Witness on Good Friday morning It began from the Cornerstone Church in New Town where those taking part were given the opportunity to have hot cross buns and then the Ecumenical Walk of Witness through the town for a short service at 11am. at the Post Office Square in the High Street.
To walk behind a cross on the main street of town is a simple but powerful declaration of faith in Jesus Christ. It is also a visible reminder to all who watch that there is hope to be found in the resurrection of Christ. Hope of forgiveness, of new beginnings and a purpose to live for.
