What’s the reason for this?
It is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. There is a wide variety of churches in this area just from the traditional denominations (Anglican, Methodist, Baptist, United Reformed). In addition, there are a number of community churches and no less than three other fellowships which meet inside this building on a regular basis.
The United Service tends to draw from the traditional churches. For us at St John’s there is the special draw that our preacher on this occasion will be Sally.
