Churches in Biggleswade, Sandy and Potton marked Good Friday with acts of open-air witness before the celebrations on Easter Sunday.
Good Friday marks the crucifixion of Jesus in Jerusalem two millenia ago, with Easter Sunday celebrating his resurrection as described in the New Testament.
Biggleswade’s Walk of Witness and united service in the Market Square were attended by about 100 people, led by Steven Anderson of the town’s baptist church – with hot cross buns all round afterwards.
Alf Ringwood, leader of Biggleswade’s NewLife Church, told the Comet: “The square was quite packed out at the front. We had a fabulous time and enjoyed a wonderful service led by Steven.”
In Sandy, the procession started at the Methodist church off St Neots Road and progressed through the town centre to the Baptist church in Bedford Road and finally St Swithun’s.

Afterwards there was another short walk to the Baptist church for hot cross buns and hot drinks.
