Approximately 300 persons participated in the walk, which marked the culmination of two weeks of celebration to mark the church’s centennial anniversary.
According to Reverend Eldon Anderson, the first missionaries of the Wesleyan Church, Reverend C.O. Moulton and Reverend John Corrigan, came to Guyana in 1908 and founded the Wesleyan Church here.
The two men died in Guyana in the same year, and were buried where the La Penitence Dump is now situated.
The walk began at the Wesleyan Church Headquarters at Lot 8 Brickdam and proceeded down Brickdam and into High Street.
It continued past the La Penitence Market and the burial sites of the first Wesleyan Missionaries, before proceeding back to the church’s headquarters on Brickdam.
According to Reverend Anderson, the march sought to witness the Wesleyan Church in Guyana, and at the same time, to recollect the past service given by the founding missionaries.
