Celebrating Chinese New Year - Brunswick Methodist Church, Newcastle Upon Tyne
In February, Brunswick Methodist Church was taken over by its Chinese Methodist congregation to celebrate Chinese New Year.
The service was led by Kevin Cheung, a local preacher and member of the Chinese congregation, who principally in Chinese with a translator.
The hymns were projected in both English and Chinese as were some of the prayers and readings.
As 2018 is the Chinese Year of the Dog, the Revd Lawrence Law took 'Dogs' as his theme, beginning with Lassie and going on through the good things that dogs are responsible for.
Both congregations enjoyed the joint fellowship and the service is one that the Church wishes to repeat again.
