In Abingdon there were a number of Good Friday church services. Both Trinity and Abingdon Baptist Church (ABC) met together at 10:30am for a joint service. This was the penultimate service at the Baptist Church before they leave the church for a major revamp. So it was a last chance to see the old pews, the backlit cross, and the crack above the alter.
ABC will be meeting most of the time at Carswell School during the revamp, and joining with Trinity for one Sunday morning every month.
There was a procession starting at 11:45 leading to the Market Place and then to St Nicolas for a service of the churches in Abingdon at 12:00. About 80-100 people took part in the traditional procession.
Good Friday is the day when Christians remember the Crucifixion of Jesus.
