Lowestoft church celebrates 150 years
Christ Church in Lowestoft will be 150 years old on February 12, and will be celebrating with a special service on Sunday, and a series of special services and events throughout the rest of 2019.
The celebration service at 3pm on Sunday February 10 will remember the past and focus on the future, and will be followed by tea and cake.
Monica Brewster, Church Office Manager, said "Our celebrations will start with a special Anniversary Service on Sunday. There will be hymns, prayers, readings, several testimonies, a “Review of the Years” and a bible talk by Revd Matthew Payne. We thank the Lord for all those who have had links to the church over the years - it would be lovely to see lots of faces here, both old and new - a chance for a great reunion."
There will be special services with guest speakers, all past curates or in one case a previous vicar, on May 26, June 2, August 4 and November 3. There will also be a celebration weekend on June 8 and 9 with music, refreshments, a wedding dress display and children’s activities, including a celebration service at 3pm on the Saturday. The celebrations round off with a Sea Shanty evening with fish and chip supper at 7pm on Saturday November 2.
Christ Church is on Whapload Road, Lowestoft, Suffolk, NR32 1XD
