Celebration on Dunstable Downs - South Bedfordshire Circuit
Following the success an event in 2017, the South Bedfordshire Methodist Circuit held an outdoor celebration of praise on
The theme was ‘Sent Out’ and more than 300 people from the Methodist churches in Luton, Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard and the surrounding areas joined together to sing old and new hymns and watch dramatic re-enactments of Bible stories. The sun shone and the crowds enjoyed making and flying kites, along with a picnic.
A band made up of musicians from around the circuit led the singing. Assisting in the service were the Gospel Choir from Leagrave High Street and the Zimbabwean Fellowship Choir.
The Revd Nina Johnson said: “Our vision being to take worship ‘outside the walls’ of our buildings and into the local communities. As we enjoyed each other’s company, we increased our awareness of God, our creator as we looked over the amazing view from the Downs.
