Today the crowds gathered in the grounds at the Church of St James with St Luke's in Staple Tye for a fantastic afternoon of celebration for their 25th anniversary! It was lovely to see friends from St Mary's, St Stephens and Sawbridgeworth Evangelical Congregational Church joining in the festivities.
An open-air Service led by Revd Helen (Anglican) Revd Barbara (Methodist) and Fr Bernard (Roman Catholics) with music and song led by Harlow Brass Band started off the aftertoon in grand style. Father Bernard's talk stressed the inclusivity of church — that church is for everyone.
The celebrations and fun continued with stalls and games — 'Splat the Rat' proving a hit with the children and a few grown ups too!
The delicious cream teas served in the Church no doubt added a few inches to the collective waistline!
A huge round of applause to everybody who helped in any way, to all who came along, and a standing ovation for the band!
