THE eighth Barry Walk of Witness will take place on Good Friday, on April 19.

The Churches of Barry have once again teamed up for the annual event for the two-mile walk around the town and all are invited.

The walk, which began in 2012, begins at the Parade Gardens, near the Ship Hotel, at 12pm.

The first station sees ‘Jesus arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane' after prayers and a hymn.

Walkers continue up Ship Hill to the second station at Barry Railway Station where 'Jesus is tried by Pontus Pilate'.

The walkers continue along Broad Street to the third station at AG Adams where 'Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry the cross'.

There will be a brief stop at AG Adam's after the devotions, for people to use the toilets and have a glass of water or squash.

Walkers then continue along Holton Road to arrive at King Square at about 1.30pm for the fourth, and final, station where chairs are available.

It will feature The Crucifixion' with further readings and reflections and a hymn accompanied by the Salvation Army Band.

When the service ends at King Square all are invited to tea/coffee with hot cross buns in the Welsh Tabernacle Church.

Father Robert Parrish, team vicar in the Barry Ministry Area, walk organiser said: “Everyone, children and adults, are warmly invited to join in at the start at the Parade Gardens at 12pm or to join in anywhere en-route.”

The walk is supported by churches of all denominations in Barry and will include children from church Sunday schools and youth clubs.

The wooden cross, made by Cardiff & Vale College (CAVC) students, in Barry, College, will be carried in the procession to re-enact Christ’s carrying of his cross on the way to his crucifixion.
