World Church afternoon 2017

We were delighted to host the 2017 World Church afternoon for Nottinghamshire Area United Reformed Churches on Sunday 19th November.

The theme of the annual event on this occasion was a celebration of our world church links. We reflected on the work of the Council for World Mission, of which the URC is one of thirty-two member churches, the Botswana Synod of the United Congregational Church of South Africa, with which our synod has close links and Commitment for Life to which many, if not all, our local churches make a contribution. Our minister, Revd. Chris Ford, hosted the event and we were delighted that Judith was able to come and speak about the link with Botswana and that Sylvia was present to give up-to-date information about Commitment for Life partners, the Zimbabwe connections in particular.

Following the presentations and sharing of other stories, we enjoyed a bring-and-share tea and then worship incorporating hymns and chants from different parts of the world church.
