To mark Good Friday, which commemorates the death of Jesus Christ, Croydon churches grouped together to stage a crucifixion re-enactment.

The procession, headed by Croydon Bishop Paul Hendricks and organised by Churches Together, travelled up Croydon High Street to the Alms Houses, where the crucifixion was staged against the building's walls.

After a gospel choir led by local Ken Burton sang, the procession moved onwards to Marks and Spencer, where the Salvation Army ended the event, which has run for 22 years.

Churches Together unites 30 groups, including Anglicans, Baptists, Catholics, Pentecostals, Free Churches, Methodists, Quakers, Seventh Day Adventists, United Reformed Church.
