Led by their Minister the Revd John Kime, on Sunday 13 May around 20 people gathered for morning worship at Barton Street Methodist Church, Gloucester to celebrate the 100th Birthday of Marjorie Bayliss, who first arrived there 96 years ago!
During the service Marjorie, who was accompanied for the occasion by one of her nieces Patsy Bates and her husband Carl, received a bouquet of flowers from the church, plus a special letter of Thanks and Congratulations from the Superintendent, Revd Dr James Tebbutt. Finally the congregation sang Marjorie's favourite Hymn 'Blessed Assurance' which she had chosen especially.
Afterwards to the strains of 'Happy Birthday!', coffee and pieces of Marjorie's 100th Celebration Birthday cake were served to the gathering.
