Walk of Witness 2021

For many years, the Kirkwall Council of Churches has organised a Walk of Witness on Good Friday.  Beginning at our own church – St Olaf’s – we carry a cross and walk a route that takes us to each of the member churches in the town.  There’s a short service or time for reflection in each church, and we appreciate the opportunity to share with each other in our different styles of worship.  As we walk together, our denominational differences are forgotten and we are united in remembering that Christ died for us:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

In 2020, the pandemic brought us into a lockdown situation and our churches were closed.  But we still wanted to mark this important season in the Church year.  So, like many others, we decided to go online.

This year, 2021, we find ourselves in a similar situation.  Even though some churches are able to meet in person, the severe restrictions on numbers and other considerations made us decide to take our Walk of Witness online once again.

Follow the videos below to take that walk with us.
