Two Church Anniversaries

On 3rd of May I went first to the Deepings Methodist Church where they were celebrating 135 years of Methodist worship on that site and 25 years in the present building. The celebrations began on the Saturday evening with an excellent concert by singer/songwriter Paul Field. I was thrilled when Paul offered to sing again in the morning service. Later he and I had to cut the birthday cake!

Later on that day, Elton Methodist Church were marking the 150th Anniversary of their church, although Methodism in the village goes back much further; the first chapel was built in 1816! Rejoice and be glad!

It was a privilege to share worship with both of these societies at such important stages in their work and witness.
