The main event of our stay was the 'Bikers Service' at Sulby Methodist Church, where Malcolm had invited David and I to preach. Many Bikers have been making the annual pilgrimage to the TT Races and this service for several years. It is the first time I have seen an advert for a 'Bikers Service' on 'Mad Sunday' sadly described because it is the day when visitors are renowned for driving rather dangerously around the Island. Many churches on the Island provide hospitality
during the TT Races, including food and accommodation.
Rev David Gamble and I were both rather surprised to be described in the local Island newspaper as nationally renowned speakers!
The couple below attending the Bikers Service were also celebrating
their 2nd Wedding Anniversary.
Watching the TT for the first time was breathtaking, the bikes were doing well over 160 miles per hour and were almost impossible to see but you could always hear them roaring past you.
We had the pleasure of visiting a brilliant youth club held every Friday night at Ramsay Methodist Church, where children with special needs alongside other young people enjoy a meal together, games and dancing.
