On the Lawn – in the sunshine!

DSCN5553On Sunday 7th August we shared a special Covenant Service on the church lawn with friends from Verwood and Woodlands Methodist Churches. This service was special because it marked the anniversary of the first Covenant Service organised by John Wesley on Wednesday 11th August, 1775. Here we are in the sunshine enjoying some music just before the service began – can you spot yourself?
