Shoppers and congregations from a number of churches in Lincoln and nearby villages marched from the Stonebow to the Lincoln War Memorial on High Street for a Good Friday Civic Service.

The outdoor half-hour service featured four crosses, each setting off from the North, South, East and West of the Stonebow, followed by the Salvation Army band, the Civic Party and congregations.

A service then took place at the war memorial, with a welcome and prayers from Reverend Hamish Temple, Chairman of Churches Together in Lincoln and District, a reading by Mayor of Lincoln, Councillor Patrick Vaughan, and an address from Pastor Brian Keel, from Lincoln Alive Church.

Those watching the service could also take part in the hymns and prayer service.

Once the service finished, refreshments and hot cross buns were served at St. Mary le Wigford Church Hall.
