Easter 2009 Silent Witness
Act of Silent Witness on Good Friday, 10 April, 2009
from 11.00am - 12 noon
As a part of the Easter scene in Inverness it has become a custom for local Christian believers to stand in Silent Witness around a large cross at the intersection of Inglis Street and the High Street for an hour on Good Friday from 11.00am until 12 noon.
This act of testimony of faith in Jesus Christ is a poignant reminder to passing shoppers of the price paid by the Son of God on Calvary, and has traditionally been organised by the Salvation Army.
Local Salvation Army officer James Elliot who has taken over from his predecessor Major Paul Billard extends a warm invitation to all believers to come and stand for whatever period possible. It is not necessary for any one person to stand for the whole hour.
Additionally the Inverness Branch of the Scottish Bible Society is due to conduct an outreach in the Eastgate Centre and the streets leading towards the Silent Witness location.
