Good Friday

Last year I photographed four rather different events of Christian witness on Good Friday in different parts of London – including council estates, a main railway terminus, a shopping centre and a traditional ceremony at one of the oldest Anglican churches in London.

This year I managed only one, the other half of the North Lambeth and District Good Friday Walk of Witness, which made its way around the area by Waterloo Road and The Cut to meet up with those coming from the Imperial War Museum to the service in Waterloo station.

We started at St John’s Church on the Waterloo Road, a fine Greek Revival building, leaving by the gate at the back of the churchyard and walking to the modern St Andrew’s in Short Street and on to the square opposite the Old Vic theatre. After a short service there the procession led on to Waterloo Station and a longer service with the other group in the middle of the forecourt.
