The event, led by Russell Day from the Salvation Army and the opening service of collective worship held at St Peter’s Church, saw four processions, each reading part of the Easter story, walk around the town.

The event concluded with a gathering in Wisbech Market Place where the four groups, each carrying a length of red rope, came together to form the shape of the cross where there were more Bible readings, the singing of a hymn and a prayer was said.

Matthew McChlery, chairman of Wisbech Churches Together said: “It was very pleasing to see so many people in the town turn out in such a large number to join together to celebrate and remember the importance of Good Friday: Jesus’ death on the cross.

“The event went very well and was a powerful witness to the people of Wisbech as well as a beautiful sign of unity amongst the different Christian congregations in the community. Wisbech Churches Together wishes everyone a very happy Easter – Jesus is alive!”
