With the lockdown in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Chorley's 2020 Walking Day is a virtual service. Here we join some of the churches in the Chorley Churches Network for prayer and thanksgiving. This service gives us the chance to hear how some of the churches have responded to the challenge of ministry during the Covid-19 pandemic. We see digital and video footage of previous Walking Days. And we are pleased to be joined by Sir Lindsay Hoyle, MP and the Bishop of Burnley, Bishop Philip North.
