About 70 people walked from Gore’s clock tower to the Gore Baptist Church, as part of the Good Friday Crosswalk.

The event was co-ordinated by Southland Anglican archdeacon Keith Gover who said the walk was held in remembrance of Jesus Christ.

Along the way, walkers stopped to hear Bible readings that described the last hours of Jesus’ life, to pray and sing hymns.

Mr Gover estimated the walk had been held for about 10 years, apart from the past two years when the event was cancelled because of Covid-19.
