Our Minister Rev Alan Jenkins was the preacher for our Morning Family & Parade Service on the 9th February 2020.
This Sunday was the 70th Anniversary of the founding of our Guide Company.
During the service we heard from our current Guide Captain about the history of the 17th Colchester (Castle Methodist) Guides, and we welcomed special Guiding guests from the Region and District.
After the service a celebration cake was cut and enjoyed by all. There was also a small exhibition of memorabilia from the 70 years of the Guides.
During the service, Alan got the young people of the Guides and Boys’ Brigade involved in a practical exercise in following directions to emphasise the point of his sermon that you need to Let Your Light Shine for it to be effective, whether that is literally or spiritually. He also talked of his own experiences of Orienteering.
