Dozens of Christians gathered to take part in the annual Walk of Witness ceremony.
Around 600 people from the member churches of Churches Together in Hitchin took part in the Good Friday Walk of Witness and United Service.
After prayers in Bancroft Gardens, the procession, headed by three crosses, went along Bancroft and High Street with a service held in Market Place.
The service was led by Jane Litchmore-Grant, the chair of Churches Together in Hitchin.
The Rev John Hardaker of Christchurch was the preacher and music was led by the music group of St Mark’s Church.
