Easter Walk of Faith, Bribie Island, QLD

Easter Walk of Faith – an Ecumenical Event Organised by the Bribie Island Uniting Church

Members of a number of Christian Churches (the Uniting, Baptist & Catholic Churches, Church of Christ, Assembly of God, Christian Outreach Centre – all from Bribie Island – and the Victory Church from nearby Ningi) along with friends and visitors, joined together in a Walk of Faith on a beautiful sunny morning on Bribie Island on Good Friday.

About 60 – 70 people walked – joined by several elderly folk in their “gofers” – along the waterfront, stopping at a number of places along the way to hear readings from the Scriptures and to reflect on these. A simple wooden cross, carried by a member of the Victory Church congregation, led the procession.

By the time the final stop was reached, at the sound shell in Brennan Park, the number of people had swelled to well over 100 who listened to the final reading and the singing, by the choir of the Uniting Church, of several well-known and well-loved hymns. A prayer of thanksgiving and final blessing, delivered by the Pastor of the Victory Church, concluded a very simple but very moving ecumenical event.
