The Winchester and Romsey Churches conducted a quieter closing worship, challenging us with Jesus’ Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 and we closed with 'You shall go out with joy’. It was a good day, a lively one!. It was great to catch up with old friends and acquaintances and meet new people and be part, for a while, of the wider Church.
