It is now 50 years since St James Woodley began, when on November 30th 1969 the congregation first met in Southlake School. We marked this by a weekend of Celebration on Saturday 30th November and Sunday December 1st 2019. The 150 guests included members of the church and clergy past and present, who enjoyed the opportunity to meet old friends and be introduced to some new ones too.
On Saturday evening we looked back over those 50 years, remembering the journey we had travelled and God’s incredible goodness to us. We enjoyed a presentation of the last 50 years, photos and artefacts on display and a delicious buffet supper. The next day we commenced our journey into the next 50 years, reminded by Laurence that we build on the firm foundation of Jesus and our challenge is to show his love to our community and beyond. We celebrated Communion together, and worshipped with joy, one fellowship reunited over 50 years with one sense of purpose to worship Jesus and make him known.
These photos were taken on the Saturday evening.
