CONGREGATIONS from churches in Hitchin gathered in the town on Good Friday and Easter Sunday to mark the dates in the Christian calendar.

All faiths took part in the Walk of Witness which followed a route from Bancroft to Market Place on Good Friday where a short service was held.

On Easter Sunday, bell ringing followed a communion at St Mary's Church.

Also on Easter Sunday, youngsters performed Resurrection Rock at St Faith's Church.

This modern adaptation brought the Easter story into the 21st century against a backdrop of live music and upbeat drama.

Over 50 young people from churches all across Hitchin joined in with the ground-breaking production.
