Walk of Witness – Good Friday – Ardgay and Bonar

Bonar/Arday Walk of Witness

Good Friday 19th April 2019

Start Bonar Health Centre/Bradbury Centre 10:15am*

End Ardgay Stores and Highland Cafe about 11:30am

The walk will consist of six stops along the way, with a variable amount of walking between them. There is room for at least a few cars at each stop and so it will be possible for those who cannot walk the whole route to participate by adjusting the amount of walking required to suit their needs.

At each stop, there will be a Reading from Scripture, a short Reflection and a Prayer. As we leave heading towards the next stop, we will sing a hymn and carry a wooden cross as witness to Christ’s Sacrifice.

*Those with cars and who wish to do the walk, may leave their cars at the ‘Barn’ (Kyle of Sutherland Dev Trust) car park by 10:00am and we will organise transport to get them over to the start in Bonar, which will be at 10:15am. This will mean that your car will be there for you when you are ready to leave, rather than having to wait for a lift back over to Bonar to pick up the car.

A Thanksgiving service

Official invitations are to be posted to any volunteers who were with the Tain Youth Cafe YMCA at the start and they would be grateful if you could e-mail or drop in any names and addresses to Graham Nutt as he is keen to not miss anyone out.

It would also help us out if people could The Youth Cafe know that they plan to attend, for catering purposes.
