Circuit Webteam: June 2017
Sunday 4 June saw the inaugural Big Pentecost BBQ at St John's Northgate Methodist Church.
Starting with a bright and sunny morning, it soon clouded over and the dreaded rain began. Not to be stopped Revd John Kime put on his apron and started the barbeque's. A variety of burgers, hot dogs, chicken, veggie kebabs and burgers were served to over 50 people who also enjoyed salads and many delicious desserts as well as a few hours of wonderful conversation and worship. This event was supported by members from St John's Northgate Methodist Church, Barton Street Methodist Church, St James and Christchurch, Kingfisher Church in Tredworth and St Mary de Lode Church.
At the end of the event many people were heard to exclaim what a grand occasion this had been.
