180th Birthday

180th Birthday

On Sunday September 25 Second Congo celebrated its 180th birthday. The special worship service featured four historical characters from the church’s past, and four “Grasshopper Tales” (five-minute stories, in the style of Moth Radio stories, each told by a member of the congregation who participated in a “leap of faith” in the church’s history). The adult choir sang and the handbell choir rang, both under the direction of Sue Green. Vintage photographs and newspaper clippings from events such as the explosion of the church organ, will be on display in the social hall.
