Past events of 2012 and 2013
Good Friday 29th March 2013
Now a regular event on Fakenham & District Churches Together calendar, this year’s Walk of Witness gathered members of our churches for quiet contemplation in St Anthony’s RC church before we set out. Readings from St Mark’s Gospel (chapters 15 & 16) remembering the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus, prayers and songs interspersed our walk. Our solemn march through town following the cross stopping at the library and in the market square, ended with final prayers and song at the Baptist Community Church who provided us warm drinks and hot cross buns. The Salvation Army did us proud with brass accompaniment to ‘Just as I am, without one plea’; ‘There is a green hill far away’; ‘When I survey the wondrous cross’ and ‘Amazing grace! How sweet the sound’. As we sang in the Market Square a troop of young pilgrims on their way to Walsingham gathered with us, and joined us for the last leg.
Holy Saturday 30th March 2013
Churches Together told the Story of Easter through music, dance and drama starting in the Market Place.
Holy Saturday saw Fakenham and District Churches Together present the story of Easter by enacting a short sketch about a rag man. The rag man walked through the ‘town’ pulling behind him a shopping trolley full of good, brand new things – almost like they were presents.
Fakenham and District Churches Together Carol Service 2012
Young and old came together to share the telling of the Christmas Story through music, readings, poems and meditative prayer. Captain Paula told us the Christmas Story looking to the light and hope that Jesus brought to the world. Much laughter and joy was shared throughout the service.
Music was provided by the Salvation Army Brass Band and pianist and by The Super Singers from Fakenham Junior School as part of their outreach to the community. As part of the Carol Service they sang us carols telling us the story of Jesus birth and the coming of the Magi. They gave us a joyous conclusion to the service with smiling faces and Christmas songs wishing us a Merry Christmas.
Afterwards we all enjoyed cakes, mince pies and coffee listening to Christmas music played by the Salvation Army band.
We say a big thank you to the all the members of Fakenham WWDP, participating churches and Paula and Stuart for organising this wonderful service.
