Over 500 people took part in the Formby Walk of Witness on Good Friday


Well over 500 people braved the cold and threatened rain to take part in Formby Good Friday walk of witness and passion play on 14th April. The walk of witness started in Chapel lane with people walking and singing as they made their way to Formby Pool Gardens.


Rev Sue Thomas from Holy Trinity led the prayer and gave a thought provoking homily about the meaning of the Easter story for each one of us in our lives.


The passion play which told the story of the last supper went through the arrest, trial, passion and finally Jesus resurrection from the perspective of the apostle Peter. The cast was made up of volunteers from local churches. Peter Murphy from Our Lady’s church portrayed an engaging and forgiving Jesus. Mark and Tim Hogben from Formby Elim church as the apostles Peter and Judas showed different responses to making wrong decisions and accepting forgiveness and Ted Woods from St Peters played the role of doubting Thomas.


The Mayor of Sefton, Cllr Ian Brodie-Brown attended the event. John Ryan, chairman of Churches together in Formby, Altcar and Hightown said: “The Good Friday event takes the story of Easter beyond our church buildings into our local community. The music and drama helped to bring the story alive and add meaning.”


Thankfully, the rain held off and many people stayed on to enjoyed tea, coffee and Hot Cross Buns provided by volunteers at Formby Pool and Holy Trinity Workshop. The refreshments raised £288.37 in donations for Famine Relief in Africa.


Dympna Edwards from Churches Together and Formby Pool Trust who helped organise the event said “This event wouldn’t have happened without the time, energy and dedication of many people from across Formby. We thank everyone who took part from the stage crew, stewards, actors, sound crew, volunteers at Formby Pool and Holy Trinity and to everyone who came and took part. Particular thanks are due to Rev Sue Thomas for inspirational address which she shared with us.”


Photos of the event will also shortly be available on Churches Together website www.ctifah.org.uk
