NYD Webteam: August 2017
If you went down to the lake at Semerwater in Wensleydale on August Bank Holiday weekend you would've seen a gathering of Christians celebrating being part of the Church in a service led by Rev. Dave Clark.
The weather was good as Christians old and young of many denominations gathered around the "church in the dale" trailer whilst Hawes Band played for the hymns.
During the proceedings each person was asked to pick up a stone, examine it — and notice that all are different and the same. They were invited to write their names on their stone (using washable ink pens — no pollution) and then build a structure on the table provided to represent the church in its variety and standing together.
Our pictures show the gathering and another as people queue to add their stones to the building.
