Palm Sunday Procession

Windyridge shopping centre to St Nicolas' Church

Sunday 9 April 2006

The procession setting off from the Wymans Brook shoping centre We take our act of witness out into the community.  This year we met at the shopping centre in Windyridge at 09:30 and walked to St Nicolas' Church, singing as we went.

Here we see Fr Grant Bayliss and Fr John Mead leading the procession.

Meanwhile the Celebrate! congregation met at St Marys' Infant School and walked in joyful procession to St Mary's for a short service.  They then returned to the school for a bring-and-share breakfast.

Later on at St Mary's, at 11 o'clock, we processed out of the south door and back in the north door, with Fr Paul playing the organ, seamlessly coordinating the singing of the two ends of the procession.
