In 2007 we celebrated the coming together of Woodley Methodist Church and Woodley
United Reformed Church to form Christ Church. It was also the 25th Anniversary of the
new church building opening, replacing what is now the church hall.
Below is the order of service of one of the special services we planned, that for the Banner Dedication Service
that dedicated the Anniversary Banner that was made during winter 2007 and spring 2008.
It was held on Sunday 11th May 2008 at 15:00 and was led by members of the Banner Group. It lasted 90 minutes
and was followed by a meal.
It featured talks from each of the groups represented by squares on the banner.
