Photographs by Patrick
YET again the Churches
Together of Formby, Altcar and Hightown, produced a splendid
re-enactment of Christ’s Passion on Good Friday, 29 March 2013.
It gave the many hundreds of folk, who turned up to the Formby
Pool Field to witness it, much food for thought. It was very
evident that much devotion and energy had gone into the
production and fortunately the weather although cold was bright
and encouraging, so the congregation were able to appreciate
Before the enactment there was a Walk of Witness which began by
the Formby War memorial and proceeded to go down Chapel Street
to the baths. There followed a short service with the
introduction, opening prayer by Paul Nchoroge, the Chairman of
Churches Together. Later the Reflection and Prayers were led by
Canon John Roberts.
This event has become a firm tradition for Easter in Formby and
we hope it will long continue. We hope these photos will help
those not present to capture some of the spirit of the day.
Holy Trinity Workshop, the Formby Pool Cafe and several local
shops were open for refreshments afterwards. Members of the
following churches took part in the event: Formby Christian
Fellowship, Formby Methodist Church, Formby United Reform
Church, Holy Trinity Church of England (CofE), Redgate CofE, St
Ann’s Roman Catholic (RC), St Jerome’s RC, St Luke’s CofE, St
Michael’s CofE, Our Lady of Compassion Church RC, St Peter’s
CofE, and St Stephen’s CofE.
