Representatives and members from a wide variety of Christian church denominations gathered together in the Quenn Mary Centre in Wisbech.

They gathered together to celebrate their diversity and to pray for Christian unity in the town as well as in the wider world.

Representatives from each church had the space to present something that represented their particular expression of the Christian faith which served as a meaningful contribution to the other collective elements of the service.

The Salvation Army brass band played the hymn Glorious Things of Thee are Spoken while The King’s Church band played a selection of more contemporary

songs, including a piece especially written for the event by Worship Leader, Matt McChlery.

The whole event was a positive demonstration of Christian unity and solidarity in the town and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Churches that were present included: The Church of England, United Reformed, Trinity Methodist, Wisbech Baptist Church, The Quakers, The

Salvation Army, The Roman Catholic Church and was hosted by The King’s Church, Wisbech, under the banner of the Wisbech Churches Together organisation.

Keith Aplin, chairperson of Churches Together in Wisbech said: ”I thank Clive and the King’s Church Team plus all who took part for a lively and very moving WPCU Service. It was great to see so many there and to enjoy worship and Fellowship.”

Clive Butcher, Elder of The King’s Church, said: “It was a good expression of the unity that comes through our Christian faith – even though expressed in diverse ways around the churches.”
