Mrs Joanne Eckersley a Methodist Local Preacher from the Colchester Methodist Circuit led our Morning Service.


Jo led our thoughts centred on Peter’s Vision and his subsequent visit to Cornelius. We read from Acts chapter 11 about how this was a revelation to the early church. Jo reminded us how in a world today of great diversity we still need to view things God’s way. You can hear her sermon here.
