Remembering the Saints of Durham Street

On the closest Sunday to 1st November, All Saints Day (traditionally called All Hallows Day, which is why the previous day is All Hallows Eve, or Hallowe’en), we celebrated the ‘saints’ of Durham Street.

Members of the congregation were asked to bring in photos of ‘saints’ who had been an important influence for good in their life or faith. The ‘saints’ didn’t have to be perfect, or necessarily have attended Durham Street Methodist Church themselves, but to have influenced lives and joined the great crowd of those who have gone before us and who inspire us in our faith. The photos were put on display and the service included a contemplative time in the garden lighting candles.
