This photo shows some of the worshippers that remained following a very successful united service at North Weald Methodist Church on Sunday 30th June.
Congregations from the Epping churches and Ongar gathered together at the suggestion of the Area Meeting. There were two other centres hosting united services across HAEBEA on the same day.
Special mention should be made of the participation of Mr Brian Herring whose final service it was after some 50 years of membership at North Weald. Other participants in the act of worship took part in the readings and a drama.
The Minister, Revd Cecil White, said "I am so pleased that all four churches made the effort to gather together. It is good for our identity and fellowship as Christians".
