NYD Webteam: September 2020
Friday 4th September we welcomed our new Minister Rev Julia Reid. The service was on-line and you can re-live it by clicking here.
With the service being on-line many of Julia's friends from afar were able to be part of the welcome as well as circuit members.
We sang two hymns, 'And can it be' and 'I the Lord of Sea and Sky'. There was a reflection by our Chair of District Rev Richard Andrew about fishing in a different way based on the story in John 21 where Jesus tells the disciples to cast their nets on the other side of the boat.
Julia delivered the blessing to conclude the service.
