Kessingland Methodist Church

While on holiday in north Suffolk (Kessingland, just south of Lowestoft) I attended the local Methodist Church on the Sunday morning.

It was about a mile away from the caravan site so I walked.

The church looked least like any church I’ve ever seen. More like a residential house, but inside it was clearly a church and I was made to feel very welcome.

The wall behind the communion table was of flint, and it was explained to me that the more flint there was in a building, the more expensive and impressive it was.

There was an electronic piano (not organ) and the seating was arranged in a horseshoe.

Like us the Sunday service was at 10:30. They also had a prayer group on Thursday evenings, coffee morning on Tuesdays, and other activities

There were 13 of us at the service, including the minister and organist, and, of those, 3 (including me) were holiday visitors.

They were using Singing the Faith, and although I didn’t know some of the hymns, a music version was found so that I had a chance of singing them 🙂

Do you attend a service while away on your holidays? If so, we’d love to hear about it, with some photos if possible.
