Easter is more than just chocolate Easter Eggs. The true meaning of Easter for many hundreds of millions of people across the globe is commemorating the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Jesus was crucified on Good Friday on the Hill of Calvary by the Romans, and that’s why the Walk of Witness takes place: is it commemorating the walk that Jesus did before his crucifixion before resurrecting back from the dead three days later brought the gift of forgiveness and eternal life to all who would receive it.

At the Walk of Witness destination at Cardonald Parish Church, many people that took part in the procession went into the church for a service, with no seats to be had in the church many stood around the pews to praise there risen saviour.
