Good Friday Silent Witness in Inverness 2013

It is a Good Friday tradition which has developed over several years for Christian believers to stand during an hour of 'Silent Witness' around a wooden cross in Inverness city centre as testimony to Christ's death and resurrection.

You are warmly invited to come and stand for a while - as long as you choose – along with fellow Christians and amidst local city shoppers to bear witness to the saving power of Jesus Christ. The Witness period runs from 12noon - 1.00pm and you can come and leave as you are able. There is no requirement to stand for the whole hour.

On one occasion a little boy was overheard asking his Mum to explain what it all meant. Meanwhile at another moment a young girl broke away from her friends to stand for a while in offering her thanks to God for answering her prayer to help her stop self-harming. Read the report of the 2010 Silent Witness.

The video below shows clips from the most recent Silent Witness (2011) with the 'hour' forming a spiritual input into an otherwise everyday scene of High Street activities and shoppers.
