Church-goers were joined by members of different faiths to celebrate the 150th anniversary of St Luke’s Church on Sunday, August 28.
Originally intended to be a street party, a late call was made to have the festivities inside the church in Norfolk Road when the weather looked like it might turn.
The church had turned 150 on Tuesday, August 23.
Children and adults did manage to take part in games outdoors as part of a mini-Olympics when the sun came out again, including a shot-put-style game and an egg and spoon race.
Rev Sally Lynch, the church vicar, said: “We didn’t do the egg and spoon race inside. A – that wouldn’t be very holy, and B – it would be a bit of a mess.
“It was good. We had members of the mosque there and the synagogue.”
The day finished with a reception where those attending contemplated the church, and what it meant to them.
