About 150 people from different Christian denominations came together for the annual Passover dinner at Our Lady’s Catholic church in Hitchin on Monday.
Passover, a Jewish holiday marking the Exodus in the Old Testament, is linked to Easter in Christianity.
The evening started with the children’s search for leavened bread around the hall, and later the young ones were sent out to look for Elijah.
In between the gathering enjoyed traditional roast lamb, unleavened bread, wine toasts and singing.
A noticeable proportion of the attendees were from the town’s Anglican churches.
Father Tom O’Brien said: “It was excellent, a great spirit and a real sense of family.
“The fact that people from other churches came gave it a very ecumenical feel.”
