Good Friday 7th April 12.00pm in George Lane. Walk of Witness.
Good Friday (7th April) saw the annual Walk of Witness and joint Ecumenical Service in George Lane. Parishioners and clergy from Woodford Methodist church, St Mary’s Woodford, St Anne Line and The Salvation Army came together for the service at 12 noon in George Lane on a bright and warm sunny day.
The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ was held in the middle of George Lane on what was for many a busy shopping day. Yet the many pedestrians and drivers could not have failed to notice us as we gathered together to sing hymns and pray.
The Introduction and Opening Prayer was given by Rev. Alan (SAL). The First Reading was by Rev. Elizabeth (SMW). The Second Reading was by Fr. Barto (SAL). The Third Reading was by Rev Oseias (WMC). The Fourth Reading was by Paul Scott (Salvation Army). The readings were interspersed with several hymns – Broken For Me; Amazing Grace; Were you there when they crucified My Lord? After the 4th reading there was the Taize chant – Jesus, remember me, when you come into Your Kingdom. This was followed by a final prayer and sending forth from Fr. Barto (SAL).
After this many (despite being sent forth ) stayed to chat with their friends from the other churches. All in all a wonderful display of Christian Unity and a fitting celebration of The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Ray Park Community Garden
Local gardening group the Woodford Greeners are seeking support to create a brand new community garden in Ray Park.
Currently there is an octagonal 18th century walled garden in Ray Park with little public access. Inside it, many areas have become overgrown, so the Woodford Greeners are looking to raise funds to restore a small section of land and create a community garden with help from local volunteers. The new garden will include an area for medicinal plants as well as a growing patch of colourful perennial flowers which will be grown from seed and when full, moved to public planters around the Woodford neighbourhood to brighten up the area for residents, as well as support local bees. We will also erect a timber gazebo where we can hold regular workshops in gardening, arts & crafts and food growing.
Please help us to support local wildlife and biodiversity in the area by creating this community garden. Any size of pledge is welcome. Visit: https://www.spacehive.com/ray-park-community-garden
