Back in time to move forward - St Andrew’s Methodist Church, Sheringham
St Andrew’s Methodist Church, Sheringham, combined its Harvest Festival celebrations with the popular Sheringham 1940s Weekend. Thousands descended upon the town, decked in vintage clothing and uniforms. The morning service at St Andrew's was well attended and led by the Revd Ann Bossingham, dressed in a 1940s army padre uniform.
Professional 1940s singer, Rachel Eyre, sung worship songs as people gathered outside to feast on root vegetable soup, spam sandwiches and rock cakes. They were reminded rationing was in place.
The Revd Ann Bossingham said, 'It was not only a grand occasion, but an opportunity to present the good news of Jesus to the community of Sheringham and beyond as well as building on relationships within the town."
